Tennis News - by Bruce Payne

    As promised in the last Connections, here is an update on Marcia Thuermer’s 7.0, USTA team which qualified for sectionals in Lake Nona. The team started off with two monster wins over Hillsborough and Pinellas by the identical score of 2-1. The team fell to Sarasota the next morning just missing a shot at the final. Congratulations to Marcia and her team for another great season.
   Linda Homa’s 3.5, 55 and over team also won district competition and qualified for sectionals. Linda’s team was unable to attend due to injuries sustained by several players.  Linda notified the USTA coordinator when she knew they couldn’t attend and the second placed team from Ocala took their place. This league was won last year by Ann Sulinski’s team, also from Skyview. Between Ann, Linda and Marcia Thuermer, the Skyview 3.5 women have been outstanding in recent years.

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. There are four top tournaments called the Grand Slam Tournaments. These are Wimbledon, the US Open, The Australian Open, and the French Open.

   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.
