“Senior-Itis” Not Just For Our High School And College Kids

SeniorsThe warmer weather the last few days has turned the thoughts of many in and around the JMTA and Sportime to visions of the outside courts vs. our state-of-the-art bubbles. While that usually involves many of our young people that we often chronicle on our blog, it also includes people of all ages and backgrounds as tennis is a game for all. Recently we started getting an increasing number of seniors from our neighboring communities coming over to join us, get in shape and play the game we love.

The seniors are from the Union Settlement Association, located in East Harlem, and they have been turning out in increasing numbers when our Academy players are in school during the day. They even got a recent visit from John McEnroe, who gave them some tips on the game. Welcome seniors, and bring your kids and grandkids over as well!
