Speaker:

Hey hey, this is Shaun with the Atlanta Tennis Podcast, powered by GoTennis.

Speaker:

Speaker:

Speaker:

Tennis Podcast.

Speaker:

This month, our featured story comes from Polly.

Speaker:

Her story reminds us how integrated Tennessee is into our neighborhoods and is a wonderful

Speaker:

way to make new friends.

Speaker:

Have a listen and let us know what you think.

Speaker:

I moved to Atlanta in 2010 and I only knew one person.

Speaker:

It was a lonely summer.

Speaker:

But I loved the neighborhood because people were always out and about, smiling, waving

Speaker:

and walking dogs.

Speaker:

One day, my husband visited Dennis Pavilion and was quickly recruited to play on a main

Speaker:

steam.

Speaker:

Even though he only played at Biddy High School.

Speaker:

After a few weeks, I woke up to the courts to watch a match and I met another player's

Speaker:

wife.

Speaker:

Neither of us had ever played tennis, but by the end of the match, we had a set date with

Speaker:

our husbands to get together and try.

Speaker:

We had so much fun that we signed up for lessons.

Speaker:

We were invited to join a beginner team and I will never forget how scared I was to get

Speaker:

it all right.

Speaker:

Scoring, heating, changing sides, but the other ladies helped us through and I wasn't embarrassed

Speaker:

at all.

Speaker:

After the first season, I was soon on board, weekday and weekend teams and by the next year

Speaker:

I had joined Mixed with my husband.

Speaker:

After I turned 50, I also joined a senior team.

Speaker:

Fast forward through 12 years and I ended up being captain for several teams, playing in

Speaker:

city finals, state tournaments and have now joined our pickable league.

Speaker:

Two years ago, I moved to Lake Lanier and a tennis team was the first thing I looked for

Speaker:

as I knew it would help me to meet new friends.

Speaker:

I am so thankful for the ability to pick up and play anytime anywhere, for the coaches

Speaker:

that have taught me strategy over the years and for my community of tennis friends that

Speaker:

extended beyond the court.

Speaker:

Well, there you have it.
