DoDDS Europe has a very high level of competition at the season ending tournament in Wiesbaden, Germany. Despite this, our Tennis team took home 2nd Place in 2015 and 3rd Place in 2012.
One of the good things about the tennis team is that we have Ting L. and, with him, he elevated every single player to another level. They are working hard! They are getting better! Everyone's level is improving. It takes time, but we did very well this year.

Our tennis experience this year was different. We had a new head coach and team members. It gave me the opportunity to really take a leadership role and help the new members improve as well as push the team to greatness. I had a wonderful time this season.
