I have been a member of MPLTC since September 2015 when I relocated with my husband to the UK. I joined the Club Committee in December 2017. I’m Dutch and started playing tennis in the Netherlands from a young age, stopped playing for 12 years and started again. I’ve always played competitive tennis, both singles and doubles. On many occasions, I’ve found myself playing a singles, ladies doubles and a mixed doubles all on one day!
Since joining Magdalen Park I have played in the ladies’ teams and I’ve been a captain of a ladies’ team and a mixed team.
The Monday night ladies practise is something I’ve started to organise, coach and play with all the team players and reserves. I think I can say on Monday evenings we combine fun and good drilling and hitting practise with doubles tactics which we can all use in our matches.
This is my first year of being ladies captain. My role is to oversee all the ladies teams and get more ladies involved.
You can find me at the club on Monday evenings and most weekends for social tennis. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch!
