The Sound Shore Senior Men’s 125 Nationals
by Peter Keiser

20140117_132609_resized

“I keep thinking that if I play long enough I can’t help but win,” says Bill Fanning who plays paddle tennis out of the Wilton YMCA in Wilton, CT. “The problem is the guys who beat me forty years ago, beat me now. And there are fewer of them.” Fanning, going on 78, could be a poster boy for the Sound Shore Senior 125-Nationals played annually at the Fox Meadow Racquet Club in Scarsdale, NY. He came to platform tennis later on in his athletic career having played football, hockey and baseball in college.

The Universal Partner
by Peter Keiser

“I’m ultra competitive but I partner well.” —- Steve Baird

To say that Steve Baird knows something about winning paddle tennis is an understatement. He was inducted into the Platform Tennis Hall of Fame in 1999. But what sets him apart even from his Hall of Fame colleagues has been an uncanny ability to match his superb physical talents with extraordinary more subtle partnering skills. “The team is what makes you great. You can only succeed if you have a team,” says Baird. “Look at Scott Mansager and Flip Goodspeed. Three or four years ago they won the Nationals at 46 or 47 years old. They beat much younger players because they knew what a partnership was all about and played as a team.”
