Senior Games’ athletes compete in doubles tennis tournament

Latest News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Senior athletes from across the nation showcased their tennis talents Monday at Jerry Cline Park. The doubles tennis tournament in the National Senior Games kicked off over the weekend and wraps up Tuesday.

One team says visiting New Mexico for the Senior Games had given them a new outlook on the sport. “It’s a fun experience; everybody seems to be having fun, it’s not real real serious,” Mark Pollack and Bill Robinson said.

Competitors from out of state say the most difficult thing to adjust to was the altitude.

Monday was the last day of competition for most of the senior athletes. California appears to have won the Games with 617 medals. New Mexico comes in second place with 558.
