A LOT HAS CHANGED Since I posted "Male. 67. back arthritis. fat and out of shape."

I have found a patient person to hit with and have played quite a lot in the past 2 1/2 months.  I am now hitting pretty well from the base line and both sides of the court.  I am covering the court well enough to compete against most 3.0 players. Two days ago, I hit with Jan for two hours straight. We have had many rallies approaching 20 hits.  I am ready to play club or team tennis.  I also turned 68.  Anyone want to play - dbls, singles, or just hit?


I am hoping to play in the Washington Open next year.

I prefer:

Fife HS

Saghalie Middle School in Federal Way

Five Mile Lake County Park near 360th and Military Rd.

Auburn HS near White River

Sprinker in Tacoma


I'm retired and can play most days.

I'm a male, 69, in reasonably good shape but not much of a tennis player (maybe 2.5-3.0) and would like to hit some balls with you. I live in NE Tacoma but Auburn or Federal Way or Fife would be fine. I took up tennis a couple of years ago in Arizona and play a lot of mixed doubles down there in the winter. This summer I have been taking lessons, which pretty much meant starting over, but at least my forehands and backhands have some topspin now. We are leaving tomorrow morning, 8/17, for 5 days but will be back 8/23 and around most of the time from then to October 1. You can call me at 253-561-7613 or send me an email at
