Tim Farwell is the No. 1 ranked 60+ tennis player in Florida, and he’s found a way to combine his favorite sport with a great job. He’s the tennis pro in The Villages, Fla. and says he loves teaching, especially to people who are in their 50s, 60s, 70s and even 80s — and he also believes that it’s never too late to pick up a racquet for the first time.
Farwell didn’t like school, but he loved tennis, so he followed his dreams (and ignored his parents’ advice) to excel at the sport.
He’s one of the toughest players in the country, but even the best have to lose sometimes — see what Farwell tells Growing Bolder about good sportsmanship, and what keeps him going!
