These 18 women are proof that tennis players do live longer—regular exercise and good friends! Most players are in their 70’s and a couple are in their ‘80’s. They play from 8-9:30 am every Thursday with Greg Griffey and Jeff Eaton on two or three courts. They spend an hour catching up with each other after they play and have frequent pitch-ins.

According to Mary Kramer, the group’s organizer since 2002, the group branched off from the Love 50’s team which was a national senior women’s league that was started at CRC in 1990. Several years later Love 50 was absorbed into USTA Senior Leagues. Some of these Love 50 players decided to form their own seasonal group instead of playing senior leagues.
