Tennis and Marriage


 

Many members of the tennis group are hovering around 50 years of marriage or already achieved that celebrated status. We suggest that tennis has played a major role in our success. It is the only sport that begins with Love. This year two of our players will celebrate their first year of marriage, provided Andy doesn’t screw up. Dick & Lynn Rew and Mel & Pat Oakes celebrate 50 years (2013). Here are wedding pictures for members of the group. As you can see tennis players are serious about “doubles.”.
