February 23rd Tennis Day

Today we celebrate the creation of tennis. Ah, no one seems to know why today was chosen but I suppose it’s as good as any other day. Walter Wingfield maybe have invented tennis at Pimlico, England in 1874 when he created lawn tennis. I do find it curious that February was picked since much of the world is still covered by snow. Have you ever tried to play tennis in the snow? Ice would be interesting, snow… not so much so. Tennis use to be a sport for the rich, today practically anyone can play. It offers a great workout, is fun to play and gets you out in the great outdoors.

How to celebrate – Go play tennis! Get a new tennis outfit. Try playing tennis on ice but remember the padding.
