Its a bit pathetic that u r lecturing me bout how kids should have fun. Kids r pretty good at workin out how to have fun by emself
You totally missed the point. This is a TENNIS FORUM. People aren't on here discussing the casual game of golf with buddies to drink beer and laugh at each other. We are passionate about tennis. And yes, to a certain extent, parents make choices for their kids until they are old enough to choose for themselves. I'm not advocating pressuring them to become pros at 10, but show them that you get out of something what you put in. And when you do that, it's a ton of fun. That's sports.
