I would be expecting OH to spend time with the kids or I on weekends.
    I do invite them, and actually really want them all there as a family activity.
    My eldest DD is taking an interest now and I have just booked her in for lessons on the Saturday afternoon .... so if she enjoys it she will likely want to spend some time at the club.

    Thanks for all your responses.
    It is a difficult balance to achieve.

    Firstly - you're lucky to have a physical outlet that you enjoy and are good at. I'd be sticking to it and asking your partner to kindly help facilitate it once a week - which really isn't much. How many sacrifices do you make during the year? I'm guessing plenty. It's not too much to ask for and if it makes you a happier person, then it's absolutely worthwhile.

    Thanks elevator,

    So I haven’t exercised all week and have taken tomorrow off tennis to keep the peace. I feel flat from no outlet and no outlet until next week now.
    On brighter note my DD has her first lesson booked for tomorrow afternoon.
