Flickr Pic #40: [Seiseki Tennis] Clay
[Seiseki Tennis] Clay
Originally uploaded by scion_cho
I started playing lawn tennis on my 2nd year in college. Back then, I felt like I had to graduate from my Table Tennis days (my main sport at elementary school) and advance towards the 'real' and bigger court.
I believe that in order to improve my game, I have to play with someone better. However, it is always the lack of a tennis playmate that keeps me from advancing. Even now that I'm in Japan, I am having a hard time looking for playmates close to my area.
One time, I had no choice but to travel about 1.5 hours via train in order to play tennis with some friends living in Western Tokyo. Oh, I miss my college days when the tennis court was just a stone throw's away from my dormitory.
*Pic details: blue pail used to hold our tennis balls; clay court lines. A minimalistic attempt on photography. :)
