A What? A Chair. A Tennis Chair!

Back in the first few weeks of July, I had the great chance to try out wheelchair tennis. I was edgey about it at first but good thing I tried! (If you missed that post, read about it here)

With the summer coming to an end and school starting soon, I'm always looking for ways to get myself not only more focused on school but also more evolved with extra-curricular activities. If you know me, you'll know I'm big on sports and love playing sports even before my accident. So best way, duh, play sports!

So after thinking about it for awhile I've decided that I am going to try out for the school tennis team this year :D And tennis wouldn't be complete without a tennis chair. As mentioned in my old post, I emailed Mr. David Wagner and even got an answer on tips and which chair would be best. After some research I set tire out on a journey to convince my parents to help me pay for the new chair ("set foot out on" and "set tire out on"...get it? get it? lol :P)

After a long discussion, we came to an agreement that if I pay for 75% of the cost AND sell my old chair, they will help me pay 25% of the chair. And seeing how nice my parents are, they even help paid the extra 50 cents!

Quickie Matchpoint, new tennis chair!

So amongst all this chaos going on with Sean, the craziness of trying to finish up summer work, there is still happiness and excitement. Can't wait till this baby is delivered so I can start working on my tennis skills :)

Next on the list, sell my old chair!
