I got into tennis at age 50, after many years of playing and coaching soccer. Decided tennis was much better for me for the long haul. Fell in love with it and started moving up the ladder of lessons, tournaments, league play (my record is playing on nine teams in one season), and taking USTA classes in Quick Start Tennis. Next thing I know, I’m teaching adults and children at Millbrook Park in Raleigh, getting Licensed as a Cardio Tennis Provider and becoming a high school tennis coach. The icing on the cake is being able to give back to the sport by serving on ENO CTA board of directors and on local and USTA NC committees. I am now an official tennis fanatic.
