Jacob and I were finally able to play tennis this morning. We tried to play yesterday, but when we got to the Astoria courts, the woman told us you either needed a season's membership or day passes. However, they didn't sell day passes at the courts - or anywhere near them. (How stupid is that?) So we had to go all the way to a sports shop in Union Square to purchase some day passes. Each one is $7 and gives you an hour to play - but really it's $14 since each person needs a pass. Kind of expensive for city courts, but it's NYC, right? Anyway, we got to the courts around 10am and played 'til 11am. We missed the rain by like 1 minute, so that was good.

It was a lot of fun, though neither of us are very good. But I figure that means we ran around after the ball more, which equals better exercise! Anyway, we've vowed to try to play once a week now that I have my racquet and we understand how it all works.
