Polo Park Estates resident dominates volleyball court at age 100
Helen Estes, a resident of Polo Park Estates in Midland, Texas, proves her accomplished athletic prowess in high school is a timeless asset. At 100 years old, Helen leads her community’s volleyball team, the Polo Park Pipeliners.
Just like Helen is not your typical athlete, the Pipeliners are not your typical volleyball team. The group of Polo Park Estates residents stays active and engages in friendly competition by playing a modified volleyball game. The Pipeliners sit in chairs and play with an inflatable beach ball. Practicing two days per week, the Polo Park Estates players are gearing up for a fall season, which will include multiple competitions against their sister retirement community.
A born athlete, Helen lettered in rifle, archery, and basketball in high school. Now, she is adding volleyball to her list of accomplishments. Helen serves as the Pipeliners’ activity coordinator and works to keep the team motivated and active. Although she loves to win, she knows the physical exercise and team bonding benefits will be substantial no matter the score.
Best of luck to the mighty Pipeliners on the fall season!
