There seems to be a trend.....more and more women tennis players are combining their love of tennis and their enjoyment of the social aspects of playing on a team by taking group tennis vacations. Early in May a group of ladies from Ontario Racquet Club went to Kiawah Island, South Carolina to play in a team event organized by a group who provide team competitive opportunities for women over 45 called Meet Play Love Tennis ( www.meetplaylovetennis.com ). This group of ladies under the name The Eh Team (see photo) took the top honours in the 3.5 event as the only Canadian Team and judging by this photo the group will return next year.
