First Tennis Match!

April 8, 2009

Last Saturday I played in my first tennis match! When I found out that I was playing in the match (about 3 hours before-hand), I was excited as well as nervous.

My teammate Violeta Borilova and I played second doubles. We competed against Fryeburg Academy on our indooor courts.

This match was a scrimmage to prepare for the season to come. I was able to practice keeping score, serving, and volleying. The game was a fun chance for me to get a sense of how tennis is played and what specifics I need to focus on to improve.

Today both the women’s and men’s tennis teams have matches on our home courts. Drop by to watch and cheer on the athletes!
