I’d like to invite all of you to visit the Senior Men’s tennis sub-club, which meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at the Wimbledon Racquet Club at 10:00 AM. Our unique format allows players of all ages and skill levels to participate in a healthy and enjoyable sport, without the need for schedules, commitments or substitutes.
Our annual social calendar includes several pizza parties, a hotdog picnic, a steak cookout and a Christmas Dinner. If you are interested in playing with or learning more about the tennis sub-club, please contact me, Tom Roberts, or stop by the Wimbledon Racquet Club and watch us play. Thank-You!
The GPSM Tennis Club ended its 49th indoor season at the end of May with its traditional pizza party and presentation of the trophy to the winner of the season ending Roy Vorhees, Jr. Tennis Tournament. The tennis club plays from Labor Day to Memorial Day at Wimbledon Tennis Club in St. Clair Shores, then moves outside to George Elsworthy Park across from the Neighborhood Club during the summer months.
The 2017 winner of the prestigious tournament was GPW “youngster” John Brewster, who out-pointed runner-up Tom Roberts in a play-off; see photo to the right, Tom (left), John (right). Good fun. Good competition. Good”youthfulness” and banter. Leon Trumbauer and Bob Wrosch were the other two finalists.
Please feel free to join us this summer at George Elsworty Field from 10:00 to 12:00 on any Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. Requirements are simple: minimum of 55 years old, male, tennis ability in the range of below mediocre to slightly above mediocre, and a thin shell. There is no charge in the summer. Perhaps your cardiologist recommends giving us a try. We call it social exercise!
Finally, it is both saddening and refreshing to recall those of our fraternity who have passed on this year, leaving us memrories of humor, commiseration, idiosyncrasies, and perhaps even prowess: “Steady” Sam Curcuru (86), philosophical Kirk Bradford (79), and tutorial Ray Smith (79). We will miss their unique contributions to our fellowship. May they RIP! Amen
