Tennis

The GPSM Tennis Club extends a warm invitation to all men over 55 years old to join us on any Monday, Wednesday,  or Friday between 10:00 and 12:00 at Wimbledon Racquet Club for some friendly doubles tennis. Most players show up for the exercise, camaraderie, and the opportunity to get out during the not-so-warm months.

The heralded social events include an autumn steak-out dinner (Oct. 5) at Windmill Pointe’Park’s Tomkins Center, a festive Christmas dinner at Encore (Dec. 5), a summer chili dog picnic, and several pizza parties at the tennis club. Please consider adding another dimension to your already busy lives. We have a (tennis) ball!!

If you need additional information, call Roy Vorhees (586) 381-0944 (Secretary) or Leon Trumbauer (313) 885-8742 (President)

Below are the chefs Tom Roberts, Ed Goosen, and Tom Cracchiola.  Enjoying the cooking are Bob Wrosch and his friend, Donna.

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“!
