I've noticed that a lot of people's tennis experiences on here mirror my own: started tennis at an early age, played through HS/college, then dropped the game completely for a decade or two, then picked it up again in mid-30's. So I've decided to create a poll, with a few limitations to satisfy my curiosity (PLEASE READ THESE LIMITATIONS BEFORE VOTING!!!). Please ONLY answer the poll if: 1. You are currently more than 30 years old. 2. You started playing tennis when you were under 10 years old. EDIT: If you're close to these criteria, go ahead and vote. Just don't vote if you're 55 and started playing ten years ago please Assuming you satisfy those criteria....did you take an extended break from tennis at any point? How long was it? Or have you played tennis constantly since as long as you can remember? NOTE: If you took a year or two off because of injury, that doesn't count. I'm looking for people who could've played, but voluntarily didn't.
