Do you love to play tennis and then talk about it with your friends? We do too—so we created a podcast!




Carolyn is the creator of the ‘Second Serve‘ podcast. She was encouraged to pick up a racquet by her husband after she kept getting hurt playing basketball as an adult.

She practiced corporate law for ten years and thought she would start a podcast about legal matters but then realized that wouldn’t be as fun as discussing adult recreational tennis. Carolyn was a Park/Centennial Scholar at N.C. State University and graduated with honors from UNC School of Law.

Carolyn has an unorthodox style of play, which includes a two-handed forehand and randomly charging the net for no apparent reason!



Erin didn’t grow up playing tennis and never touched a tennis racquet until she was 40 years old. She wanted to find a team sport but, at her age, she was limited to tennis or golf. Thankfully, she picked tennis because sometimes it’s the only cardio workout she has time for!

Erin is a graphic designer and is in charge of making ‘Second Serve’ podcast look good in all aspects (email campaigns, FB, IG, and YouTube posts, etc.).

Hitting a forehand is Erin’s favorite shot. She takes clinics fairly consistently but instead of “playing smart”, she often resorts back to just hitting the ball really, really hard. Go big or go home, right?





1. Who are the hosts of Second Serve podcast?

'Second Serve' tennis podcast was created by Carolyn. While getting ready to record her first episode, she contacted her friend, Erin, and they recorded an episode called "Advice for Adult Beginning Tennis Players". They have been a team ever since (both in terms of podcast hosts and tennis partners!). The pair met while playing tennis. Both started playing at the 2.5 level and are currently 4.0s.
