First PMC: 1986
Dolly Bicknell found her calling on the tennis court in her
family's Marshfield home where she played doubles with the
neighborhood boys and men. She also found her husband Len,
whom she met there in seventh grade. Daughter of a writer
and a historian who also delivered airborne packages to lighthouse
keepers at Christmas time, Bicknell perpetuates the "flying
Santa" spirit as president of two lighthouse preservation
societies. In her fourth decade as a teaching pro, Bicknell
still teaches forehand and backhands outside the family home,
which is now occupied by her daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren.
"Rather than teach someone to become a very good player, I'd
like to teach them to have fun," says Bicknell, New England's
number one doubles player for many years. "Tennis is a game
you can play forever."
"The boys would ask me to play."
