Now that Caroline Manzo has left The Real Housewives of New Jersey, she probably has a lot more free time. True, she does have her own spin-off show, Manzo'd With Children, to keep her busy, but we're guessing that Season 1 is wrapped up by now and Caroline is enjoying some much deserved downtime. In other words, it's the perfect opportunity to take up a new hobby!

Caroline and her hubby, Al, have done just that, and they've gone for a popular one-on-one sport: tennis!

Caroline took to Twitter to announce their decision to break out the rackets.

"Al and I have decided to take up tennis, this should be interesting," Caroline wrote.

Good for them! Tennis is a great way to burn some calories and have fun together. Plus, have you guys seen Match Point with Scarlett Johansson? Things can get pretty steamy out on the court. A little healthy competition could be just what the couple needs to spice up their marriage!

Either that, or Albert and Caroline will end up having a good chuckle together chasing down stray balls. Of course, laughter is another great way for couples to bond and feel closer. So, whether Caroline and Al's new hobby proves hilarious or sexy, it sounds like it's a win-win for their relationship.

Hopefully we'll get to see some of the tennis action on Manzo'd With Children — if not this season than (*fingers crossed*) on a potential Season 2.
