I just had my first lesson last night and loved it! Yes, it's a bit frustrating and yes, at first all I wanted to do was smack the shit out of that little ball as hard as I could.
But, the teacher had much patience and invited me and my friends to bring "beverages" for our next four lessons.
Who wouldn't love a sport that gets you out into the sun with friends and drinks? I've been missing out all these years!!
