Learning to play tennis in your fifties is no small feat, but becoming a serious, competitive tennis player at the sage of sixty is a whole other matter. Gerald Marzorati, a former New York Times Magazine editor and award-winning author, shares the inspiring and entertaining account of his pursuit to become a nationally competitive tennis player– at the age of 60. In his book, Late to the Ball, Marzorati takes on his quest with complete vigor and absolute determination to see it through, providing a rich, vicarious experience for the reader, involving the science of aging, his existential battle with time, and the beautiful, mysterious game of tennis.
