A game that is better than everything else. Unlike baseball where you can sit for most of the time, tennis players actually do something and don't sit there like fatties. It requires strength, speed, agility, and mental toughness. Also, we can yell at officials all we want, just ask John Macenroe.

The best sport ever! Where you hit a ball over a net and try to beat your opponent. There are many different strokes. For example, groundstrokes, vollies, overheads, serves, approach shots, etc. Grab a tennis racket, a tennis court, and a few tennis balls and you're ready to play tennis!
Tennis is so much fun! I could play it all day!
