This year I decided to go out for my school’s tennis team, and it was such a great decision. I was on the dance team my freshmen year and loved it, but because of my crazy schedule I had to stop. I loved being on the dance team because of all the friendships I made, the fun dances we got to do, the events and competitions we got to perform at, and because it was great exercise! I missed being on a school sport, so I joined tennis. Here are 3 reasons I decided to go out for tennis this year!
- It was my senior year and I wanted to try something new. Senior year is your last hoorah before real life kicks in, so take advantage of it!
- Being on a team keeps me motivated and exercising often. I love the feeling of hearing my friends and teammates cheering me on when I make a good serve or a good save during my matches. It is so exhilarating! Also, because we practice or have matches almost every day, I am constantly exercising. I get to stay in shape AND hang out with my friends, all at the same time!
- Getting involved in high school is so rewarding and making new friends is so fun. Being on a school sports team gives you a sense of pride. Wherever you go for matches or competitions you get to represent your school! I also love all of the new friends I have made through tennis. Plus, I am on the team with my sister! Bonus!
I have loved being on my school’s sports teams throughout my high school experience. If you have never been on one or are contemplating it, I highly recommend it! You will not regret being involved in school. These are memories you will take with you the rest of your life!
