50 plus here. Last week I played for the first time in way too many years. At first I felt just a bit winded but then rejuvenated. It was as if I'd almost become young again despite being out of shape. My forehand needs work but my backhand was steady. Was hitting with a hacker yet it was a decent work out.

"Hey Hank...I would like to play if you're interested. What level player are you?...I'm a 3.75 player. I prefer to play at Balboa Tennis Complex during evening hours when it's cooler. Anytime after 5:00 is good for me…"
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?See More
Tennis good old days fan and player here. I grew up when there were a dozen stars at once in the game and not just 3. I'm in SC but the heat is too much for me. And so I'm looking for a hitting partner at least twice a week who can pick me up and go into Hollywood to play. I can provide balls and refreshments.See More
I am 5 minutes away from Weddington Tennis and Beeman courts. Interested in playing on a weekly basis, trying to get back in shape cardio wise as well as hitting. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm in Studio City. Looking for a consistent weekly partner for rally workouts and some lighthearted competition. Prefer someone with access to private courts or Whitsett. Nothing in North Hollywood. Can provide balls and refreshments if you wanna come my way. Check out my profile for more info...
Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I'm a 50 something looking for weekly workouts. Just rallies and nothing too competitive until I have enough playing time to get my edge back. I prefer a local partner with private courts. Otherwise I'll settle for pay court time at Whitsett. Also into sports video games. Looking for a man child buddy like me. Someone worldly and not just a jock.
