    I only have to "survive" 2012 and then i´m finally allowed to play +35 senior ITF events. A new tennis-life starts then :)
    Hope to play events in Croatia, Spain, Turkey and Sweden

    Matey,it's not all beer and skittles in the over 35's. There are some guys who take it MORE seriously than the pro's. Thankfully,those guys are in the minority. Most are happy to have a beer and a chat after the day's proceedings (long as they have played their last round).

    it´s great fun and also very competitive, as gregor said.
    for me, playing itf seniors has really resurrected my tennis.
    End of september in Bol, Croatia, that´s a great tournament for example
    in a beautiful setting.
    quite a few world champions in the age groups and lots of good restaurants to sample the local food&wine:)
