FEBRUARY 2016
CAPTAIN OF THE MONTH
TERESA GEYLING
LEXINGTON, KY

 

How did you become a captain?  The previous captain had some personal things preventing her from continuing. I stepped in to keep the team together.  Then I just kept going. .

How long have you been a captain?  2 years .

Do you have a co-captain?  Sometimes yes, Lissa McCoy and Janine Coy-Geeslin But always had helpers even if there wasn't a formal co-captain. I also had lots of mentors.  .

Have your teams won Local Championships?  Yes. My 5.0 Combo team won in 2014 and went to Sectionals in March 2015. I have taken more teams to Districts.

Any family members participate in league or play tennis? My husband plays and one of my kids is showing an interest.

How long have you been playing tennis?    I began playing in 2013.

How did you start playing tennis?  I have always been an athlete and my friend Sommer was talking about tennis, and I thought it sounded fun, so I started playing with her team and attending a clinic at Lexington Tennis Club.

How did you feel when you learned you were nominated?   Excited and shocked. I have had some great teams and players through the 2 years of captaining.

Do you like to play singles or doubles? I love both! I love the physical challenge of singles and the mental challenge of doubles .

Why do you enjoy being a captain?  I am an organizer and a coach at the heart, so I love getting people out there, seeing them do well and improve their game. I love helping people connect as well. It's a similar joy to coaching kids sports through the years. I love seeing the ladies on my team growing in their game and self confidence!    

What do you like most  about playing league tennis?  The competitiveness 

 If you could attend one Grand Slam, which one would it be?  Australian Open, its the season opener and I have always wanted to visit Australia! But the excitement as the opening for the tennis year would be awesome to experience.
