Is the Racket causing havoc? Tagged with:

Now that the sun is shining a little longer, some of us are drawn to be outside.  Some of us become weekend warriors while others are picking up a hobby that your body is not ready for.  I played tennis this spring for the first time in 20 years with a recreational tennis league for doubles.  Since it had been 20 years from the last time I held a racket, my mind was screaming you are not ready for this.
