    HI -

    i find that older ladies (50+) like to ask guys in their late 20's or 30's to be their mx doubles partners. Is this a sexual thing?

    Nobody wants to play mixed with me.

    Maybe I should start showering?

    Exactly.

    The mere fact that a man is young does *not* mean he is Dead Sexy. :)

    As I think back on the mixed partners I have had, I have to say the oldest one (50+) was by far the best player and most pleasant to play with.

    Hrm, not sure on this one, but I would guess that they want to win and also like the compliments from the younger guys.

    i know old ladies want me on their team because i'll do the running for them if they get tired and if they end up against me they'll be doing a lot of running as i love long points.

    Drop the body fat to under 10%
    Drop in the inseam on your shorts to 5"
    Get a decent tan and throw out spanish phrases in the middle of matches even though you don't speak spanish.

    ...And your fortunes just might change;)

    Well I tan pretty well and am in better shape than most of the older men. Are you saying old women like short shorts on men?

    I am sure old men would like to get young women to be on their team, but can't.

    From experience, when I ask a female to play a game of singles or doubles, their reaction makes me think that they feel I am trying to pick them up. Younger guys typically don't either see things this way or mind.

    what

    what is weird is that these old women send long emails to me asking me if I want to play with them. etc. And they are not shy to tell me about their husbands. what's up with that?

    To the OP, I would not use the word "old" followed by the word "women/woman/lady".

    I have played with 2 mixed partners to date and they both are over 50 and I'm early 30's. Our whole team was more experienced women with younger guys. We call it couger tennis. Good fun but I have started to tire of the mixed at lower levels. I have gotten to where I'm ready to find a less experienced and more competent mixed partner for some more quality tennis.

    oh cindy, be gentle with our fragile male egos=p

    maybe they have things to say but their husbands don't listen.. it happens



    and i like cougar tennis from time to time.. there are plenty of older ladies and gentlemen in my tennis club and they mostly play doubles.. it's fun sometimes.. but if i play doubles for too long, i'll get the itch to play some singles since doubles is out of my element

    I hate f*cking short shorts... Especially at night.. You get cold easier and it restricts your movement...
    You'll only ever see me wear longer shorts...

    50 or Fossil?

    OMG is 50 an "old lady"? I like to play with younger guys but not because I want to nail them, they just speed up the game and make me run. I reserve the right to check out any athletic bod, old or young. I'm 49, not fossilized! Wait till you get to be 50, and let us know if you're still checking out the 20 year old girls... :lol:

    Well, ah, honestly, yes, we do check out 21-year-old girls. But we also check out more mature ladies - for backhands, volleys, overheads, etc. :oops:
