Will you still be playing tennis at 92?

Sunday, I went to the club to give a lesson to one of my regular clients who just so happened to turn 92 yesterday. I have been hitting with him weekly for the past 4.5 years and I must confess it is one of the highlights of my week (and I believe his). While he may not be able to move like he used to (and I do have to remind him sometimes to not chase everything down!), he comes and saviors his time on the court.

I try and not miss his weekly lesson, even if it means I just come to the club for that 45 minutes. I often realize I get as much out of the time we share together as he does.

What is your oldest regular student? Do you get back as much as you give (I sure hope so!)? What are your favorite things to do in that lesson?
