Gail Ingis | A Peek into the History of Tennis

Instagramtwitterpinterestfacebookblog

I love doing my blog. I have invited some of my fellow historic SMP writers for interviews. The response to my invite was encouraging. I also invite my Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writer’s (CTRWA) of America writers. Without my CTRWA group, I wouldn’t even be here. They are amazing. One of our writers won the Rita Award this year. We have quite a chapter in Connecticut.

Hi, Writers—

Tennis . . . a huge part of my alternative professional life. If you love a sport, you know how addicting it can be. Hours, hours, and hours on the tennis court practicing, teaching, playing competitively and socially. My blog today gives you a peek into tennis history from the 12th century to now. Following the life of a tennis player can be . . . electrifying. How do you cover all this in one bitty blog? You don’t, but hmm, maybe my next historic romance? Please . . . Stop by and let me know your thoughts.

Cheers,
Gail
