I am not an athletic person—Never was and never will be, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be able to dress the part if I needed to.
So when given the opportunity to receive some tennis lessons followed by lunch with all the refreshing Peroni I could drink, how could I possibly say no? Besides, I had the perfect tennis outfit already in mind.
I held a tennis racket for the first time in my life and had no idea what to do with it, which made me realize reasons why I was always picked last in gym glass in school. The tennis instructors were incredible and extremely patient especially with putting up my shenanigans and constant selfie taking on the court. With that said, I probably took more photos of myself than the amount of times I could hit a ball with my racket. #Fail. But I had a blast though, even if I got hit with a ball on the head… twice.
Rounding up the afternoon and of course an outfit change later, I was able to enjoy a fabulous lunch and kick back with a cold Peroni in a private suite to catch the Rogers Cup match with Simona Halep and Belinda Bencic in the finals. This was an incredible first time experience and watching this intense game was so fascinating. The strength and endurance that these athletes have is unbelievable.
My tennis skills may not have gotten any better since but at least I am able to walk away with the stellar experience I had at the Peroni Tennis Clinic and Rogers Cup match that weekend afternoon. From start to finish, the day was absolutely seamless.
Thanks for everything Peroni.
