This is just part of the team dynamic we have and people are still going to go out afterwards for drinks to laugh about it all.
I would also make fun of someone who called a person to play pickup tennis all the while HOPING that they would say no. But since I don't think that anyone would actually do something so absurd I haven't had the opportunity to do so.
OK, so your first case of making fun of a teammate is all in good-natured fun. I think so long as your teammates are cool with it, then it's all good.
In the second case, even though I agree that someone who called a person to play tennis all the while hoping that they would say no is in poor taste, I would NOT make fun of them for doing so.
But that's just me. I believe in treating others the way I'd want to be treated and do my best to live my life accordingly. I think it's just one of those things that comes easier when I got older and turned 40.
I'm admittedly "old school" about things like that.
