Paddleball Profile - Jim Swendris by NPA

In 1974, Jim Swendris had a liking for racquet games so he thought he would give paddleball a try. Swendris, an accountant from Ann Arbor, Mich., went on to play the game in earnest for nearly 30 years. And, as they say in Kalamazoo, the guy has been pretty decent. Swendris was asked in a questionnaire to "list any titles or high finishes in your years of competition." Swendris wrote: "Finalist a few times in afew divisions." He reached the National Doubles open final four times - in 1985 with Kevin McCully, and in 1990, 1991 and 1995 with Jim Sterken - but lost all four. But Swendris and Sterken found some solace in 2002 when they paired to win the National Doubles SENIORS and MASTERS championships. Swendris also won the 2002 National Singles seniors title for players at least 35. He has played in many other tournaments and fared quite well. "It's a fun game to play," he said, "and it's great workout and great people." Any suggestions? "Somehow, more people," he said. "Tourneys are run very well. We just need some youngsters to start playing."
