MINOCQUA - The tennis courts at Lakeland Union High School usually get filled with students.
If you stop by the courts during the summer, you'll see a different demographic taking over.
A group of senior citizens dressed in all white play with wooden tennis rackets to mimic a Wimbledon, tennis game.
Jerry Sikora never played tennis until the day he decided to get a group together back in 1990.
"It means a lot to a lot of us that don't do activities that much," said Sikora.
Since getting the group together for the first time Sikora has gotten a lot of practice.
He also added about 20 older adults to the team.
The age range of the players is from the 50s to mid-80s.
"The older you get the smarter you get," said 70-year- old Ted Dasler.
The group said they only get better with time.
Sikora said the snowbirds get more practice during warm winters in the south.
"They have no mercy on us when they come back," said Sikora.
Things can get intense on the court at times, but the friendships and entertainment brings everyone back to play.
The players said the most important thing is to always have fun.
