During his teenage years, TCSP member Ray Dalton found himself glued to the TV and captivated - watching Pete Sampras and Serena Williams compete! Seeing them play ignited a passion for tennis that keeps the sport on Ray's "must-do" list every week. As it turns out, Ray is also filled with a passion for music and is successfully building a career and recreational life doing what he loves!
With an extremely demanding career as a recording artist, Ray is called all around the world by his ever growing number of professional recording and producing partners. When he finds himself with a break while on the road, he often searches for local clubs to investigate hitting opportunities. On a recent layover in Sweden, for example, Ray found a club named "Good to Great Tennis", which was owned and operated by Magnus Norman, a renowned tennis coach and former ATP World #2 Singles Player. Ray reached out and ended up having breakfast and hitting with Magnus himself! Magnus and Ray shared stories of their experiences and quickly found a connection through tennis and music - some of the world's most universal languages!
