ITHF to host lectures aimed at baby boomers

Dr. Srini Pillay, an award-winning author and psychiatrist from Harvard Medical School, will discuss how baby boomer tennis players can use the science of possibility thinking to improve their game on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 6 p.m. at International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum.

Following the talk, Pillay will join a panel discussion featuring Dr. Dave Tiberio, a physical therapist and international lecturer, and Dr. Craig Foster, an orthopedic surgeon and instructor in joint replacement. These three tennis enthusiasts and experts in their fields will be available to answer questions and share important tips to showcase how tennis players can use their mind to improve their game, and how playing the game is particularly beneficial for the mental, physical and social well-being of baby boomers.

The program is presented by BoomerTennis.Net, an “online clubhouse” that was established by Newporters Bob and Lace Milligan. On the site, baby boomers can register to get exclusive tennis tips (physical and mental) and to network with other players of similar age and ability.

Admission for the event is $11. It is free for members of the ITHF.

To register for the lecture, call 849-3990 or email programs@ten nisfame.com.

Wine and cheese will be served.

The International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum is located on 194 Bellevue Avenue in Newport.
