The first TGS tennis tournament takes place in Thailand

 

LAST SATURDAY was an eventful day. Together, Gawa, Ambika, and I formed a tennis tournament within a week’s time!

We had twelve people participating through out the whole tournament. We decided to create doubles teams and split them up into two different pools. In the end we had our final match under the lights: Ambika & Liam vs. Gawa & Gijs. Battling for third place, we had Willem & Alex vs. Lin & A’ntonia.

In the end, Gawa and I came away victorious with Ambika & Liam in second place and Willem & Alex in third. We played from 1:30pm to 6pm. The whole day, most of the TGS’ers were outside watching and supporting the teams. We had a large variety of players, from beginners to pros; we had a lot of fun. Ball boys ran left and right, and Pema acted as our official umpire throughout the matches! It was a day that everyone enjoyed! We were outdoors in the open sun and laughing at our faults.

 

If we have the possibility to do something like this in Germany, I would love to do it again. It would be like a tennis tour around the world! Next time, I hope we can have singles matches or enough participants to pair the teams based on levels. Hopefully, we will get more people interested in joining and before you know it, TGS will have a little army of tennis players! Let the tournaments keep coming!
