A friend was pointing out that he couldn’t play tennis on his driveway because it was made of gravel.
While it’s true that it wouldn’t officially be tennis, that it wouldn’t be the tennis we might have expected, we can’t be sure that gravel tennis isn’t a good game.
It might even be a better game.
Markets, competitions and canvasses are rarely ideal. Surfing only works because the waves vary so much.
If you’ve got gravel, it might pay to try out some gravel tennis.
