Too old? Never. DH and I still play catch or volleyball in the backyard.

Do you have your own fenced yard large enough to play volleyball in?

Or a common area with loads of grass?

We have trails about 10 houses from us that go for thirty miles. Along those trails are grassy fields(maintained, mowed) and playgrounds and soccer fields, and, and, and.

My husband and I have been together more than 15 years and we've pretty much never played in our backyards. We've done yard work in them. We've played with the kids in them (although, again, I prefer to be in the flat front yard with neighbors to watch and talk to). But we LOVE to go for walks and runs together on our amazing trails.

I don't know if that makes us unusual or what.

I really have no concept of how often teens play in their backyards as I was really too busy for that.
