Anyone for tennis?

Toni and I joined forces with our friends Sam and Steve for a game of doubles last night. I hadn't played for three years (and even then it was simply testing racquets for Focus), so perhaps it was no surprise that Toni and I lost the first set 6-1. Thankfully I managed to find my serve and get some familiarity with the racquet I'm using (a Prince Tour model from 2004) - I even managed to hold my serve to love in the following set. Not that it helped much - Steve and I lost 6-3. As the light was fading, Sam and I took on Steve and Toni in a tie-break and we won 7-4, my serve still holding up. I really enjoyed it, and hopefully we can play again sooner rather than later.
