How long have you been playing tennis, and what got you started?
I started playing tennis when I was 11 for fun. My mom got us racquets in a yard sale. I loved it instantly as I had been watch professional tennis since about the age of 7. Then, I played JV tennis my freshman year and Varsity tennis for 3 years at MacArthur High School, Irving, Texas. We made regionals my junior year and traveled to Abilene, Texas. That was so amazing. I quit during college and started playing again in USTA leagues when I was 38.
What is your favorite league to play in and why?
I love playing all the leagues but my favorite is Mixed. I like to beat the boys! Ha!
What do you enjoy/look forward to about volunteering for TACK?
I enjoy being on the TACK board because I like organizing tennis, so that more people can play.
If you could attend one of the four grand slams, which would you choose, and why?
Gosh this is a hard question. I love all the grand slams. I've been watching them since I was 7. If I had to pick one, I guess it would be Wimbledon because of the history and tradition. It's the grand dame of tennis.
If you could be any piece of household furniture, what would you be and why?
That's easy. I would be a TV. I love watching sports, especially tennis, which has been really hard during the pandemic. I was so excited when WTA and ATP started playing again with small tournaments in Europe and Florida. I volunteered at the Top Seed Open, and it was really the highlight of 2020 for me.
