Ups and downs

Being a captain is a thankless and time consuming job. However, the joy of bonding with other tennis bums to play adrenaline rush matches while improving my own game, has kept me in the league ever since. Up till now I’ve captained a total of nine teams. All of them made it into playoffs (except once when I was out of the country), winning the District Championship three times and the Regional Championship once. Together, as teammates and friends, we experienced ups like falling in love, getting married, having a child (different mates) and changing gender; and downs like relocation, achilles tendon rupture (playing with pain is normal for us because not playing hurts more) and sudden death. .. Those are just some examples.
