If hitting the pool isn’t your cup of tea or the recent Legg-Mason competitions have got you interested in picking up a racket East Potomac Tennis wants us to let you know they’re delighted to take your money.

As an indoor activity it’s not a bad deal at $20 per hour, and considering that the temperature and humidity are on their way up you may want to take your exertions inside, to learn how to play, visit tennisinformation.net. They’re located over on Hains Point and have indoor and outdoor courts to choose from and a variety of services and instruction options.
Tennis is a very popular sport in Australia and is played by people of all ages. Tennis can be played by two people (called ‘playing singles’) or four people (‘doubles’). Players use racquets to hit a ball over a net into the other side of the court. A game of tennis involves a variety of types of play, including serving the ball over the net, rallies (when the ball is hit back and forth between opponents), fast movements and strategic game play.

Tennis can be played as a sport or as a recreational activity with friends and family. Either way, playing tennis is a good sport to maintain your health, fitness, strength and agility. It has been calculated that an hour-long game of singles tennis burns around 600 calories for men and 420 calories for women.

Honestly, I think they deserve your business just based on their having a FAQ question that starts with “I am a complete, uncoordinated beginner. Can I learn tennis?” I am, admittedly, somewhat easily amused.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
