    Hey guys, I don't know how many of you are interested in this, but I'm trying to walk on to the tennis team at my school for the fall semester.

    I've already gotten in contact with the coach and I'm making a preliminary video for him to see before we progress any further.

    Anyway, I figured I would keep any of you who were interested in my progress (or lack thereof). My first update should be some time tomorrow assuming he gets back to me soon, and I'll keep it going from there.

    Good Luck!

    I'm undergoing the same process as well. :)

    Hey, it's better than nothing. All things considered, you have a far better chance of playing on your team than I do.

    I walked on my collegiate tennis team. It was a great experience and I ended up being a regular starter in doubles by year 2 and even saw some limited singles action.

    My advice: Give it your all every practice and be a great teammate with a great attitude. Your coach and teammates will notice.

    Division 1. The team only had 7 guys at the start of the year. I did not make the team. I probably needed the Graphene Prestige MP. I would have GOATed with that thing.
