why arent there any 50 and older teams in Tennessee
Im just wondering here,why there arent any 50 and older teams in the east tennessee area. With all the guys that I see around at some of the tournaments around chattanooga and knoxville,one would think that there would be some good 50 and older teams playing in the SPA or others. And with all the big businesses in both those cities and all between,one would wonder why there arent some teams here.Any one have any thoughts on this ??

I've often wondered that myself. I played in SPA at Dalton,2007 and there was a team in the 60's from Chattanooga. Nice team but I think they were the only Tn team there,but not sure. We played a nice size tournament in Memphis a few yrs back but that tourney died. It is rather amazing the lack of teams in your state and also Arkansas. Hope you can hook up with somebody because this wonderful game can be the source of so much fun (and frustration!) for us seniors.

You may have to play with a team from one of the eight boardering states. (Ga, Ala, Miss, Ark, Mo, Ky, Va, and NC)
A former teammate of mine lives near Kingsport and currently plays with Kittrell's.

Tex the Monster team out of Memphis is probably the only 50 team in Tenn. At this time of the year somebody will have to get hurt for you to get on a team. Plus in SPA you have to qualify in one game before you can play in Dalton. Good Luck.

There is a 50+ team called Boys of Summer that is from East Tennessee or somewhere in that area. Don't have any phone numbers though. Maybe somebody else would have.

Maybe we need to start our own team. I was looking to pick up on a team earlier this year with very little response. I am in the Cookeville area.

I think the Ram 50+ team is from East TN.
