One Year On – The HappySlamTennis InstaVersary

Hello Everybodyguys,

Have you ever been told by your friends that you talk too much about Tennis? Well, you’re not alone. Just 12 months ago we were in that same situation when we found the Instagram tennis community, and through that we met each other.

269We started Happy Slam Tennis on the 31st of July 2014. The only thing we knew about each other was that we liked tennis A LOT and we liked Rafa….A LOT. When we started HST we joked about starting an account that focused on the unique and humorous parts of the sport. We joked about about having a place to post our wacky ideas, and we joked about the prospect of someday having 500 followers. We had been working on HST for over 3 months before we even meet face to face!

A year on things have changed. We have our #Happy place, our friends now ask us about Tennis and we are blown away to have over 30,000 people from all over the world joining in the fun. Now we hope that each of you find this to be your #Happy tennis place too – and that’s no joke!

Looking back it’s hard to imagine life before Happy Slam Tennis. We have had so many highlights from the last year that we wanted to share and you know what they say “pictures or it didn’t happen”, so just a warning its about to get photo heavy.

Yep, that’s right. We were those people taking selfies before we even walked up the steps on Day 1.

 Aus Open- Possibly the greatest 2 weeks of our lives. Seriously if you haven’t been to the “Happy Slam”, what are you waiting for? (We are already planning for 2016!).                    

We took FAR too many pictures throughout the two weeks to share with you here, so if you want to see some Rafa, Ferrer, Serena, Rafa, Verdasco, Rafa, Venus, Masha, Rafa, Federer, Berdych, Murray, Feli, Stan, Genie, Vika, Rafa and more then check out our Facebook page.

The Blog – Well you’re here, so we guess you’ve discovered the truth behind  ‘the secret’! We sincerley hope you find this to be your #Happy tennis place.

We’d love to hear your thoughts, so tell us in the comments section below.
