I have always been passionate about tennis and love the game. I played it regularly throughout my career at different posts. i had wonderful coaches and thought i was pretty good. We played with our foreign service colleagues and at clubs and had tons of fun.  I have a good serve, i hit flat and i know that my stroke repertoire is limited, but i can hold my own. For my age that is. 70 plus. Until, i came to Madison and joined a club.  I soon learned that this social tennis mind set will not work. On the contrary tennis for these club members is serious business.  Playing four to five times a week is routine for them, some play these hours plus take lessons. Then there are the leagues. So we shall see.
