Raj Tawney: 70-Year-Old father’s commitment to fitness

My dad, Roop Tawney, turns 70 years-old on Dec. 7, 2020, and somehow he’s still dominating his 33 year-old son on the tennis court. My younger self should have known he’d never let me win, even 20 years after he taught me to play the game. A local table tennis champion in his youth back in India and a popular collegiate cricketer in London, athletics and exercise have always been part of Roop’s life. When he arrived in the United States in the 1970s, he taught himself how to play tennis—a sport uncommon in India during his formative years—and passed it along to his children in the ‘90s.
