About Dad Racket

Hello there!

Thanks for visiting Dad Racket. 

I’m Gavin, a forty-something dad and keen tennis player. I’ve decided to set up this blog to make a little ‘noise’ about tennis.

I played a bit of tennis as a teenager, but ‘life’ got in the way and I pursued other interests. After about a 20 year gap, I’ve taken it up again at the ripe old age of 47 and I absolutely love it! I don’t have any awards or trophies to boast about, but my game is getting better and I hope this blog will keep me motivated to improve as a tennis player.

Although I would love to play tennis several times a week, I just have the small matter of raising my 4 year old daughter, Mia, and my newborn baby, Daniel.

As any parent would know, this certainly takes up most of my time!

So this blog will talk about various tennis topics, tips and useful information as I try to juggle being a parent as well.

Please get in touch and give me your thoughts about tennis, parenting or anything you want to chat about!
