Well, sort of. At age 39, with 3 kids, the best I can hope for is to play 1-2x/week. It's hard to improve your level if that's all you do.
Even if I wanted to play at a lower level, you can't drop to a lower league level without medical reason, and even then it's difficult to do. But no, I don't want to go backward or downward. I want to be that crafty old coot serving and volleying at age 60 or 65
Finding a different surface makes a lot of sense, but I think I would have to move to make that a reality.
