Making Friends Through Sports

Making Friends Through Sports
I play tennis and I don't know anyone. If I do make a friend, the next day that person acts as if she doesn't know me. What do I do?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It can be hard to make friends while playing a sport. Often kids are concentrating on the game and aren't thinking about forming friendships.

Don't give up on being friendly with these kids, though. Be cheerful and ask them about their interests. Perhaps some of them would like to act friendly toward you but feel too shy. If they see that you are always kind to them, they will probably be happy to be around you.

Best wishes,
