Although Hallie plays tennis year-round – she looks most forward to her high school tennis season which started yesterday with tryouts lasting the whole week. For the first time in high school tennis, she’s walking into tryouts confident.

We lost 5 seniors last year and she’s the only returning varsity player but we’ve got four girls who are all pretty equal in their level of play which will make for a fun season. She plays both singles and doubles but is really hoping to go far with her doubles partner and best friend – it will be the first time they’ve been able to compete together.

So for the time being she’ll take a break from her clinics and tournaments while she focuses on high school play and in no time my camera will be filled with court shots. Until then here’s shots from her latest tournament.
