Tennis News - by Bruce Payne

    Our court resurfacing project –originally scheduled for April –got underway late in June.  We came in one day to find the parking lot just north of courts 1 and 2 filled with tractors, trailers, Bobcats, Dumpsters and pickup trucks. By lunchtime on day one it was also home to several tons of Har-tru court material. This was a very well-coordinated effort involving the contractor, his subs and our maintenance personnel.
   The foreman of our crew had impeccable credentials. After all, he has done this his whole life. It still requires a leap of faith to watch these guys take down nets, remove the lines and scarify (plow) the existing courts like they were about to be sown with corn. 
   It gets better watching them put everything back together: five tons of new material followed by a ton of surface blend on each court. Spreading of the material is guided by a laser attached to the tractor. Then, more trips around on a roller to flatten and firm before new lines go down and new nets go up.

The Best Sport for a Longer Life? Try Tennis

Tennis is one of the most popular individual sports in the world. In tennis the player uses a racquet to hit a ball over a net into the opponents court. The ball must be kept in play and can only bounce one time on the court surface before the opponent must strike the ball back over the net. The standard ball is made up of felt over hollow rubber. Tennis is often played with one player per side (singles) or with two players per side (doubles). An early version of Tennis started out in the 16th century in France where players would yell "tenez" when starting a game giving the game the name Tennis. Later the game would be refined in England in the 19th century as lawn tennis to more resemble the sport we play today. Tennis Competition Tennis is played by people over the world as a great form of exorcize and recreation. There are also many levels of professional play in tournaments around the world.

   People who played tennis, badminton or soccer tended to live longer than those who cycled, swam or jogged.

   Playing tennis and other sports that are social might add years to your life, according to a new epidemiological study of Danish men and women.

   The study found that adults who reported frequently participating in tennis or other racket and team sports lived longer than people who were sedentary. But they also lived longer than people who took part in reliably healthy but often solitary activities such as jogging, swimming and cycling.

   The results raise interesting questions about the role that social interactions might play in augmenting the benefits of exercise.

   At this point, no one doubts that being physically active improves our health and can extend our longevity. Multiple, recent epidemiological studies have pinpointed links between regular exercise and longer lives in men and women.
