I first started playing tennis at the age of 5, in the boiling sun in Rarotonga. Initially it was just a Saturday morning, but I loved it, so I soon found myself playing 5 days a week. When I was 7 I travelled back to New Zealand for my first tournament. New Zealand tournaments became our training focus in Rarotonga, and we started traveling back to New Zealand for different tournaments each year. We had a lot of fun!
When I was 12 we returned to New Zealand where I continued playing tournaments a joined the Glendowie Tennis Club. Along with tennis I also started playing cricket and hockey. At the start of 2019 I was offered the opportunity to assist coaching at Glendowie Tennis Club and in April completed the Assistant Coaching Course.
I hope to see you on the tennis courts soon!
