Last year, E.J. “Terry” Kahn III made his debut as a blogger here by writing about his experiences at the week-long men’s-only tennis fantasy camp held at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels, Texas, north of San Antonio. Since then he’s also written about the far more civilized, co-ed week he and his wife Lesley spent at a Roy Emerson Tennis Week in Gstaad, Switzerland. Now, he has once again left Lesley at home and returned to Texas for a second helping of verbal abuse and camaraderie that are the hallmarks of this annual gathering. His writing is always engaging, owing to his sharp eye for detail and sense of humor. Hang on. We’re in for a fun ride.
