CAPTAIN OF THE MONTH
(in the middle)
How did you become a captain? I've been a captain since about 2009. I took over the 3.5 team I was playing on when the captain's father passed (she made most of the decisions via phone that first year). It expanded after that. I started captaining guys after doing Mixed Doubles and the guys I recruited couldn't find Combo teams, being the nice person I am, I captained them for Combo and it just went from there. At one time I had women from 2.0 to 4.0 and men from 2.5 to 3.5, but I've since transferred the 3.5 guys to another captain. The addition of the 40 and over league has really expanded the number of teams I have.
Do you have a co-captain? Some of the teams have an un-official co-captain (a longstanding player who is knowledgeable in local USTA procedures), but generally players don't want the obligations of being officially named co-captain.
Have your teams won Local Championships? Various teams have gone to state over the years and rarely to sectionals. No big wins.
Do any family members participate in league or play tennis? My 25 year old daughter just started playing 2.0 league last year.
What is your best shot? I've had both knees replaced, so mobility is still improving (last surgery was in May 2014). I am generally thought of as a "crafty" player, I use a mix of spins and slices on both sides and have both a two handed and one handed backhand.
