Sunday, July 4th saw a large number of tennis players engaged in social play for a couple of hours prior to sitting down to a potluck with munchies and drinks. The day’s matches will feature a mix of styles. Traditional tennis and the new and exciting format of POP tennis. In addition to play and food, one of the long term members of the Tennis Club, Rufus Renfrow, is going to be feted for his overall contribution to the Tennis Club.
What is POP Tennis?
POP Tennis is a fun, fast, colorful, exhilarating, aerobic sport that is easier than Tennis to learn, play, and master.
In POP Tennis, the court is smaller than Tennis, and the racquet or paddle is shorter — so that the hitting surface is closer to the hand — and the ball is less lively. Additionally, the net is lower, and the players serve underhand—not overhand, as in Tennis.
The huge benefits for POP Tennis players are that the rallies are generally longer; there is more fun and exciting net play and (net) poaching; there is less court to cover; there are no overhead serves to learn; and as a result, there is far less running and wear and tear on the back, legs, feet, and shoulders.
