About Memphis Footworks

In 2006, the Memphis Footworks club is celebrating 25 years of friendship and net bag hostility. Formed by Lee Guenther, our club celebrates all of our current and former players.

We play net religously on Sundays with anywhere from 8-12 footbaggers. Our current roster is comprised of the 3 distinct groups. The "has beens" (40 yrs+): Mike "Willi" Williams, Chuck Simmers, George Clark, Tommy Carls, Ken Hamric, Rick "RB" Benedetti, Greg James and founder Lee Guenther. The "new blood" (30+): Eric and Cynthia Marsiglia and the "young guns" (20+): Ben Alston, Walt Houston, David, Steven, Chris, and Juggle man. (Apologies to those inadvertently omitted). Members at heart: Rit Ritenour, Gary Edge, Chris "Gator" Routh, Andrew Williams and Lani Rector. In memoriam, Chris "KC" Allen, who passed away on the net courts Sept. 9, 2001 and Cathy Guenther, long-time kicker and supporter.

Our primo locale is the Waterworks -- a quiet, semi-secluded chunk of property in front of a water pumping facility on the east side of the Univ. of Memphis (ya gotta see it!), and we're almost always there on Sunday afternoons, rain, shine, sleet or mud. We mostly play net and some stylin'. Drop by sometime and let us show you some of our southern hospitality!!
