Re: When did you start playing tennis?

Played around as a child with my parents, but actually started playing around age 10. My parents hired a coach for me at around age 13, so I could be competitive on my high school team which won a bunch of New England championships, and I went down to Florida to either the Evert Academy or Saddlebrook to train every spring break and during the summer. Did not play as much in college, but now that I'm graduated, I try to play at least two to three times a week. But I'm convinced I'm past my peak and aren't as competitive now, than I was back in highschool
