Setting/Meeting Goals

A full life is achieved by striving and accomplishing. So if you have no goals, you have nowhere to go. Here are some examples…

Thanking our Troops Through Tennis

Thank you to all who have contributed to Dick Stockton’s Blue Sky Foundation’s program that works with our military and their families with tennis. Dick just reported that they passed the threshold to receive their $20,000 match.

That means we all helped him raise over $40,000!! Thanks.

“Senior Tennis” Over Goalcover front only

When I published “Senior Tennis” over the summer, I had no idea of how it would be received (or whether it would be worth the effort put into it); so my goal was to sell 100 copies by the end of the year. As of today, I am delighted that we are well over 200 books being sold!

And most rewarding are the positive comments i have received from people (both friends and strangers) about the book. Thank You!

In addition to being available online at and Barnes & Noble, thanks to tennis friends, the book is now on sale at ELEVEN locations…

January Tournaments

Me and Chuck

The Florida Super Senior Grand Prix starts on January 12th at The World Tennis Club in Naples. I will be playing singles and teaming again with Chuck Kinyon on doubles. My goals for the doubles are:

• Have fun, play well, and develop into a solid doubles team
• Knock off a couple of seeded teams
• Make it to at least one final
• Stay healthy enough to play most of the series!

  1. As tournament Chairman of the first Super Senior tournament at the World Tennis Club, I welcome you if you have already signed up, and remind others that the deadline is Sunday at midnight. We have a great event planned and look forward to seeing you.

    Bill – for me, the World Tennis event was the BEST OF THEM ALL! See you there. George
