Tennis Over 50

I'd like to hear from players over 50. I came across a book called Playing Tennis Over 50 and was intrigued. How do players stay in shape, compete, stay safe to avoid injury? Are there 50+ tournaments, clinics, or discussions out there?

Hi everyone;   Strategy develops by watching the pros and observing how opponents abuse me.  But maturity serves me best by improving my tech skills

in ground strokes and volleys including stop and drop shots.  I figure that if I played myself with my improved prospectives,  even I will have a very very hard time but enjoyable as I distribute my compliments even more generously.

Alex, this is really an online group for players over 50 all over the world.  The best place for you to connect is our Pasadena Tennis Group.

How do I get to play with this group?

I live in Pasadena which is not a very big town.

Can any body help?  My name is Alex with tel# 626-304-8801

I am 73 and playing the best tennis of my life.  I belong to a tennis group that plays twice a week all year, and another group that plays twice a week outside in summer.  The first group is looking for new people on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 to 10:30 AM inside at Lakevue Tennis Club in Valencia, PA, just North of Pittsburgh, PA.   All are over 65 years of age, are  very competitive. We also meet for Dinner once a month.  Call Don at 724-287-7396

Recovery, no kidding. Remember when you were in your teens and shoot you probably could grow back a finger! lol Time is something, luckily I'm healthy, good genes my Grandmother told me.

Comment by Robin Haigler on November 20, 2012 at 2:16pm
I still play hard, but my body takes more time to recover. I could take it easier, but what's the fun in that? I'll slow down when I must!
