Yes, prob too old if you aspire to go to Wimbeldon. But you are at a great age to play well with friends.

Really Important Question?
Mid teens? NO way. Am 17 and started playing when I was 16. I play and win against people who have been playing for years. At first tennis was hard. I was missing the ball and hiting just as many over the fence. But after a week of tennis and some wall time you get good enough to get a good rally. The only thing I havent master is the serve. Tennis is very fun you never to old to do anything.

Who would win this tennis game:Georgia's college men or Georgia's college women?
if you are a really good athelete, and if you are relatively healthy, no reason why a mid-teen can't still give tennis a shot. if you want to make it as a pro, you will obviously have to dedicate 100% of your life to tennis. and it may take several years for you to be at that level, but no reason why you can't work towards this goal and try to break into the pros in your early 20s. many american stars go through the college tennis system and turn pro from there.. it can be done! good luck!
How can you improve the power of the kid?
Nah...midteens is young. If you have the passion and desire,
you can do it. You will just have to work harder than those who
started at an earlier age than you to make up for the lost time if you want to be the best possible player you can be. If you are a great or even a good athlete who has balance, and co-ordination, those skills are transferable to tennis. The best tennis players are usually good or great athletes, who would be good or even great in other sports. Michael Chang, Boris Becker, and Michael Stich had soccer backgrounds. Jim Courier came from baseball, while Steffi Graf was considering pursuing track and field as an option before choosing tennis. Kim Clijster's father was an ex-professional soccer player. Lleyton Hewitt's father was an ex-professional athlete as well.
Your odds will improve if you are involved with some other sports, because it needs the handeye coordination of a baseball
player, the balance of a football player, the footwork of a soccer player, not to mention the speed of a runner, plus the athleticism
of a basketball player. Tennis is a sport that incorporates skills
from other sports, and these skills are transferable to tennis.
If you put in the time to get to your best level in terms of mental,
physical and emotional levels, you can reach your peak level.

How do you play tennis?
You defidently aren't too old. I've been playing tennis for ten years and am on the varsity team at my high school. Some of my friends who have only played tennis for a couple of years play in better positions than me on my tennis team. If you start getting private lessons now and already have experience with this sport you'll start doing great before you know it!! Do what you love and go for it!! :)
