Happiness in Action #1 - Tennis Buddies
Brian Knebel, California
I have been playing a weekly tennis match every Tuesday after work with my guy friends for the past 30 years. I feel very fortunate to have had such a long history and connection with these guys and they really helped me feel welcome when I first moved down to SoCal from Northern California and hardly knew anyone.
What I enjoy best about these weekly matches is the team bonding, talking about current events and having fun on the court with these great competitors. Off the court, we have planned activities with our spouses and have created a nice close knit group of friends who I enjoy being around very much. When we moved to Arizona for several years, I planned an annual tennis event and invited my tennis buddies from CA to come out and enjoy tennis competition during the day and an evening of good food and friendship.
