Tammy Arado Gave Me Unequivocal Support and Encouragement

I grew up in northern England where my brothers were football mad (Leeds United) but my first sporting love was always tennis. I began playing at my secondary school and on the local park courts. My fascination with Wimbledon inspired me, and I became the Yorkshire Junior tennis champion.
As I moved on to university, career, and marriage, it became harder to find time to play until we settled on Cape Cod in the summers where I played in a summer league. Six children later, I found myself supporting their sports (tennis, lacrosse, soccer, rugby) but had little time for my own pursuits. Two bouts with cancer took a toll on my health and my life and time became consumed with healing and raising a family.
My son Ciaran eventually returned to tennis after playing for his college and in Cape Cod summer leagues. He supported my return to tennis while I insisted that I had lost my confidence. Enter Tammy and Chad Arado, the tennis Pros at RVC. While I expressed doubt about playing again, Tammy gave me unequivocal support and encouragement. I have started slowly, doing clinics with both Tammy and Chad, learning so much and having FUN! I have been supported by my Personal Trainer at RVC, Amy Fortier and now I start my day three times a week the BEST way – playing tennis!
Ciaran has continued to play and has actually won both the in-house RVC Singles and Doubles leagues twice and now my four-year-old granddaughter Cora has a racquet in her hand and is joining in the family sport. Being introduced to the tennis program has changed my life and health and reignited my lifelong love of the sport.

‘Can’t’ is no longer in my vocabulary, and I have a sense of pride in my ability to work toward a goal and not only achieve it, but often exceed it.
