We all love to play tennis and many love to travel. What are some of the best places to combine both? (Plus a puzzling tennis quiz at the end).
Paul Mabry writes: “I’m planning a trip to Angel Fire, NM this summer, a tennis buddy from my club has a condo there. Its altitude is 10,000 feet and so daytime temperatures rarely get above the 70s.
He assures me there are 40-50 seniors on the tennis courts daily. I would be interested if you could poll your readers for good places a senior tennis lover on vacation might be able to find some people to play with in interesting locations.”
Roy Emerson’s Gstaad Camp
Several lucky friends of mine have made the trip to Gstaad, Switzerland to participate in Roy Emerson’s week-long tennis and five-star hotel experience. They say it is well worth the time and the money. I have never had the pleasure of the experience.
Any other recommendations for Paul (and others)??
How many consecutive POINTS can a player lose in a five set match and still end up winning? The answer to come next time (if you heard this on NPR, as did good friend Rick Barletta did, hold your response).
