 Dozens of El Pasoans, 50-years-old and older, will be competing in Tennis this weekend as part of the annual El Paso Senior Games.

The Senior Games are organized annually by the City of El Paso's Parks and Recreation Department and include individual and team competitions at locations around the city.

The Senior Games "Tennis" competition is taking place this Saturday, April 25 at 8:00 A.M. at Memorial Part Tennis Courts located at 3251 Copper Ave.

While participation is limited to those 50-years-old and order, the games offer serious competition.

"I travel throughout the United States competing in triathlons," said Arthur 'Flip' Lyle, who has competed in the games for years. "These next two events are a great way for me to gauge my level of endurance before competition."  Lyle is a past inductee into the El Paso Senior Games Hall of Fame and was inducted in 2005 into the most prestigious Hall of Fame in the City, the El Paso Athletic Hall of Fame.
