Sweet, Sweet Addiction relates the story of a family man driven by his passion to learn tennis at an age when most professional players retire. George Newton is age 33 when he finds the game. He plunges into the sport and pursues it as if he is addicted. He dealt with the duplicity of balancing tennis practice against the demands of domestic and professional life.
The story unfolds a progressive development of this tennis family. The Senior Newton advanced through years of competition to National and International Levels. His wife, Rossana evolved to become his main cheerleader, scorer-keeper and “coach”. His sons Geoff and Greg obtained Athletic University Scholarships.
The book concludes with the author changing careers from Education to Sports. Newton follows his passion and becomes a Certified Instructor. Consequently, he motivates hundreds of players to enjoy the sport. The book appeals to adults (no matter how old), to pursue their passion aggressively and live a fulfilled life.
