A screening of the documentary ‘The Longest Game’ set around friends who have come together for years to play paddle tennis in Dorset, VT.

Meet Hal, 87; Charlie, 87 and Maurie, 87. Three of a group of friends who gather every day at one p.m. in the village of Dorset, Vermont to play a game called “paddle tennis”. They have been playing together for years. THE LONGEST GAME follows their friendship, documents their wisdom and unveils the secret to their vibrancy. As paddle tennis becomes a metaphor for the ‘game’ of life, THE LONGEST GAME unearths the universal force that connects all seemingly- different human beings: Love.

The screening of this film is dedicated to Charlie Ams and all of his paddle tennis partners who went before him. Sponsored by Chip, Chris, Jeff and Debby in his memory.
