Yes still playing 2/3 times a week and golf 1/2 times a week (shooting

mostly in mid 80's from the senior tees). I did shoot a 76 a few weeks ago. I took up pickle ball after a stroke 4+ years ago and it really is a fun game and I have gotten pretty good at it. I play pickle ball 2/3 times week and sometimes double up on the same day. I played golf this morning and plan to play pickle ball at 6 PM and then tennis doubles tomorrow morning.

I will turn 73 in December. In tennis I am still a 4.0 or to be exact a 3.51, which rounds up to 4.0 under the USTA rating rules, but I am really not 4.0 'good' any more, mostly due to a stroke I had 4 years ago (luckily I am doing very well now and am still pretty good at sports. I have also lost about 30 pounds and am down to about 200 ). I used to look pregnant with my big belly.

I have not played USTA tennis for the 2nd straight year hoping I can self rate at 3.5 in 2020 where I should be competitive in the 65+ age group and maybe in the 55+ group.
