Every Age, a Way to Play
When Amy Webb began playing tennis as a 12-year-old, she didn’t realize the game would be such a big part of her life, more than four decades later.
“I remember playing against the wall at my home in Beach Haven, New Jersey,” she said.
A year later, Webb played in Philadelphia’s Gold Cup, a discount junior tennis program that prepares players for high school competition.
“That really got me into tennis,” she said. “I was fortunate enough to play in junior high, high school and college. I continued to play after that, and I’ve never really taken a break.”
These days, Webb plays whenever she can, including through USTA League Tennis — which she’s competed in for more than 35 years. Aside from the competition and the exercise that USTA League Tennis presents, she continues to find another major reason to stay involved.
“I have great tennis friends,” she said. “When you have friends that you do an activity with, like tennis, it cements that friendship.”
