Varsity Girls Tennis

There are so many reasons why I am passionate for tennis, from the tight-knit community, to the challenge of self improvement. I feel fortunate to play the game I love so much and be surrounded by such great people. I enjoy challenging myself to improve each day and also enjoy the friendly competition. GA students are so well rounded and coaching tennis allows me to promote my love of the lifelong sport with my athletes!
