East Coast? – Those dates will be published when those tournament dates are confirmed and released.

Hip Progress – This Wednesday will be four weeks from surgery and all appears to be on schedule.  I celebrated my 75th birthday yesterday by doing a 40-minute morning walk and 30-minute afternoon walk – with no cane and no limp.

And, Happy Birthday TODAY to Larry Turville!

    Larry, “who is counting?” … all the other players in the 75-79 senior tennis age group! thanks, george

  3. Thanks for the schedule – I hope you and Larry are both ready to enjoy participating in the 2019 winter circuit AND that I am there to see you play.

    Winder, that is the goal for all three of us! thanks, george

  4. Wanted to wish Larry a speedy and complete recovery . When he joined us when he hit 55 our collective skills went up A LOT . When he and Kelly got married , it was the most memorable and happy day in the 18 years Luz and I have been coming to Florida . Great schedule to look foreward to in January ! Thanks a bunch to the folks responsible for our Florida schedule . Wish all the other sections had people working as hard to have a decent tournament schedule …
