Hello Tennis Fans!
Things are going well down South, and I must say relaxing in Charleston is not a bad way to spend the summer. It feels as though summer has been flying by, especially since I started training again last week! It feels like only yesterday I was playing the Pro Singles, but now I am looking ahead to my next tournament, the Pell Cup in Newport, RI. I am teaming up with Ben Cook, one of the top amateurs in the US, to take on a strong field of Professionals for the title.
I have been working on a few projects this summer, one of the biggest of which is the Daniel Island Project. We are hoping to get a court build here in Charleston, and for the last 5 years or so have been working hard at it. I am excited to say that we are getting very close! An amazing group has come together, and with the help of the USCTA and USCTPF, we have reached the fundraising point of the project. If you are interested in helping please check out the tab on my website titled Daniel Island, or check us out on Facebook under Daniel Island Court Tennis.
Another side project I have joined is part of a research and development team for Lulu Lemon. I am working with them to improve their men’s clothing line, and it is a pretty good project to be on. If you haven’t tried their stuff, I must say it is VERY comfortable.
The Pell Cup is in August and I will be heading up early to prepare in Boston. I hope to catch up with you all over the next few weeks, and would love to hear about your summers!
