Friday mornings finds a lively group of over 50’s out on tennis courts 1-5. Most Vets are retirees in their 60’s and 70’s keen to play tennis both for exercise and for the enjoyment of making new friends and seeing old ones.
Doubles games are organised from 9 until 11:00am in a round robin of partnerships over the course of the morning. Skill levels vary, but it’s amazing how simply playing regularly improves skills, agility, and endurance. Anyone can take a tea and biscuit break and socialise a while, but then they’re back on the court for the next 20-25 minute round of play.
The Vets have made a great contribution to BBRC since 1985. They have volunteered in many capacities, adding to the life and growth of the Club over the decades. BBRC vets host a Christmas tournament and luncheon and engage in senior tournaments at area clubs.
