IN THE SPOTLIGHT: DeeAnn Phillips
March 16, 2023
By Sheila Evans
“Retiring” is a flexible word for DeeAnn, who will turn 85 in October. She has been unable to play standard tennis for a couple of years, but discovered pop tennis as a great substitute. It is played with the same rules as traditional tennis, but on a smaller court and with a ball that looks like a tennis ball, but has lower pressure. There are other minor changes, but she is happy she is able to be on the courts.
