In my mid 30's I used to play a guy who was in his late 60's. He kicked my arse. I've played a lot of the years, but never consistently. I still never learned how to get the soft corner shot. Nor how to lay one on my opponent consistently.
I'd like to learn handball but it doesn't seem like anyone plays it any more. At least not in San Francisco.
