Alternative Tennis Is A ‘Hit’ During Coronavirus Outbreak

Well, the coronavirus is shutting down America faster than we can say “coronavirus”. The only reasons to leave our homes now are to get groceries, and, well… get more groceries.

The really crappy thing is that there’s no tennis to watch. Nada. Zip. Zilch! Even the local leagues have suspended play through late April. People are so afraid of getting together now, I can’t even get a friendly singles game going. It’s so frustrating to suddenly have lots of time on your hands, but you can’t use it to do what you love… that sounds like a new verse to Alanis Morissette’s “Isn’t it Ironic“…

? It’s like rain on your wedding day
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
It’s tons of free time, but you just can’t play
Who would’ve thought, it figures…?

All joking aside… We all need to do out part in order to stay safe and keep our loved ones safe

Thankfully, we still have the internet for some reliable entertainment, and even though we have no professional tennis to watch, these guys are still entertaining – even inspiring!

That looks like fun, doesn’t it? I’d probably lose all of the balls after my first hit, lol! The real problem would be who would have to go down and retrieve the balls? (No one, that’s who ?)

No doubt, most of you are bored just as I am. But here are a couple of peeps who enjoy playing a quick game of kitchen table tennis.

And how ’bout these Austrian players… No better time to practice your backhand volley than when you’re stuck indoors, am I right?

I guess there are still ways we can get in some tennis time. I’m thinking about taking my ball basket up to the neighborhood courts and work on my serve and hit against the wall. And, of course, me and the other editors of Tennis Life Magazine will definitely be adding more awesome articles: strategies and tactics, delicious recipes, health and wellness, and so much more! Check us out! ???

What other activities are you doing to keep your tennis spirits up?

Right now I'm either up to my eyeballs in paint swatches and fabric samples, or kicking some butt on a tennis court (hopefully the latter).
