So far the Club Tennis team has had an amazing start! After appearing at Block Party and talking with many of the interested first year students, the Executive team and the returning players were very excited to see the enthusiasm and talent they would bring to the first practice. We were not disappointed. The turnout was better than expected, and the pumped up attitudes were contagious.
Because we have two practices every week, we decided to dedicate our Monday practice to a specific stroke, including groundstrokes, serves and volleys. Our Wednesday practice is dedicated to fun – we always play games and create more of a social atmosphere to get to know the team better. This method has been working great to create relationships between players, while also improving skills each week.
Stay tuned for more updates throughout the semester, and don’t forget to follow us on social media!
