GREENVILLE – Four friends were back on Greenville Senior High School’s Greenville National Bank Tennis Complex courts for some friendly competition after time away due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We were back out here after they opened the courts up,” said Greenville High School boys tennis coach, Denis Kiser.
Taking to the courts were locals Brian Reifsnider, Don Pohlman, Tim Swensen and Denis Kiser.
“We have played off and on for the past 25 years,” said Pohlman, “predominantly on Tuesday night. It has been an enjoyable support to share with everybody.”
The hot and muggy Tuesday night did not keep the ‘mature men’ off the late afternoon Greenville tennis courts.
“I love coming out with these guys,” Reifsnider noted. “I just wish the air conditioner out here worked a little better.”
It was evident watching the four play, the workout on the court was helping keep the men in good physical conditon.
“Great competition,” stated Swensen. “We’re evenly matched, we switch around and it’s pretty even no matter what we do. That is the beauty of it – it’s always close and fun.”
“They are good players,” Kiser said. “I am always the worst one out here so it s always fun to get better.”
