I had a good day yesterday. The weather was great and I played in my tennis club championships. Afterwards I was in the clubhouse enjoying a chat with club doyen Hayden Rees, who is a selector for the Tennis Victorian Pennant Teams Competition. I enquired how the entries were going for the coming season and Hayden lamented that the slow downward trend was still continuing. Whilst senior numbers were holding up well it seems that the number of young players interested in playing in a team tennis competition was falling. Why was this we pondered?
