There is no reason to make them feel like you are vastly superior. Of course you are if they can't even run. The trick is to make them feel like they have a chance to win.

Manage your Tennis time smarter. A social hit is exactly that - don't focus on winning, focus on socializing. There's more to life than Tennis.

In order to get challenged, play with younger, faster, better players.

Do what feels right - but I guess 20% social and 80% competitive Tennis should make everyone fit, happy, balanced, and (somewhat) amiable.
