Our Senior Men’s Tennis Club is carefully, yet competitively, continuing its Monday, Wednesday, Friday tennis play
at Wimbledon Racquet Club on Nine Mile. Players find themselves energized both physically and socially engaging in the sport.
Most find the time as an excellent opportunity to escape the confines that Covid-19 has imposed on us. Numbers are down a bit during this season, but our brothers down south gleefully assure us they are staying in shape despite the occasional sun getting
in their eyes or burning their arms. If any readers need to get out of the house, you are always welcome to join us.
Roy Vorhees for The Tennis Committee
The Tennis Club wrapped up its summer season of tennis on Labor Day weekend, “competing “ during the first half of summer at the very accommodating Grosse Pointe Woods Lakefront Park and then completing the season at quite friendly and well-maintained Chandler Park in Detroit. The fall season returned indoors at Wimbledon Racquet Club in St. Clair Shores at a new time- 10:30 to 12:30 Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
We are always looking for new friends to join us in “fierce “ competition on the days of your convenience. A good opportunity to get out of the house and get some exercise. Typically rotating on three courts, we probably average 14 to 18 players on any given day. Indoors, a daily session costs $10.
We strive for excellence and improvement, yet welcome mediocrity.”
PS: The social factor is of the essence!
On October 3rd, the Men’s Club of Grosse Pointe Tennis Club held their annual autumnal steak fry. The pictures below are a small representation of the fun shared.
COME AND JOIN THE TENNIS FUN!
As of Labor Day the GPSMC Tennis Club has completed another summer season of outdoor tennis at Lake Front Park. Now we are back indoors at Wimbledon Racquet Club on 9 Mile Road in St. Clair Shores. We welcome all men over 55 years old
to join us any Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 10 – 12:00 to enjoy the benefits of doubles tennis – exercise, escape, camaraderie, enhanced coordination, etc. Competition is friendly and varied, with most players in the 2.5-3.5 range.
We have several free post-tennis Friday pizza parties, an October 3 steak-out with guests at the Tomkins Center in Windmill Point Park, a Christmas party at Encore Banquet Center and a coney island picnic at a player’s home in the summer. (Beats sitting around reading the paper all morning long.) Consider joining the “Fraternity“!
