Award-Winning Second Serve Podcast Announces March Schedule

February 17, 2022

Raleigh, NC (February 17, 2022) — Second Serve, a unique, award-winning tennis podcast created exclusively for adult recreational tennis players by everyday players who are passionate about the game, is wowing an audience that, until now, hasn’t had a show specifically dedicated to them. The podcast episodes are geared toward adults playing a sport in the later years of life (hence, the name “Second Serve”). The goal of the podcast is to promote and grow the game of tennis for adults.

Founded and co-hosted by Carolyn Roach and Erin Conigliaro, Second Serve podcast is consistently ranked in the top 10 U.S. tennis podcasts, and it recently won RSI’s 2021 “Grassroots Champion of the Year.” While most tennis podcasts are about professional tennis or are hosted by experts who grew up playing, Roach and Conigliaro are ordinary players who started playing tennis as adults at the lowest levels (NTRP 2.5).

Carolyn and Erin truly believe everyone who plays tennis has been impacted by the sport and has a story. They have a true passion for playing tennis, love sharing their stories, and strive to grow the game through this podcast.

In March, Second Serve will host a variety of tennis players with various backgrounds. The topics will include:

• Adult Rec Tennis Player Uses Skills to Gain Pickleball Sponsorship – March 5
• Different Strokes for Different Folks – March 12
• How a 4.5 Learned to Play Tennis by Watching YouTube – March 19
• Sopranos-style Tennis – Playing in New Jersey – March 26
(schedule subject to change)

Second Serve podcast discusses the real-world experiences of adults playing recreational tennis. Co-hosts Carolyn and Erin also interview fellow everyday players about their experiences. They’re relatable, as they know what it’s like to balance having a family and career and playing adult recreational tennis. They also know what it’s like to win and lose from levels 2.5 to 4.0, which represent over 80% of USTA players. Their 2021 accolades include RSI Magazine’s “Grassroots Champion of the Year,” USTA Southern District’s “Marc Kaplan Media Excellence Award” and USTA North Carolina’s “Grady Elmore Media Excellence Award.”

The 100+ episodes released so far by Second Serve can be found at and on any podcast platform.
