Thanks to “Parenting Aces” for a great find.
The “Crazy Tennis Mom” blog did an article titled “A Day in the Life of a College Tennis Player”
It is a great article, very well written, that helps potential college tennis players understand what the challenges will be. Here is an excerpt from the article.
I have heard many people ask what a typical college tennis schedule is like, I don’t know what it is like at other schools but I can share what it is like for my son. He gets up for six a.m. workouts two or three times a week, each workout lasting an hour and a half. From there he heads out to his eight o’clock class. His schedule is set up so he is generally done in the early afternoon. From class he runs to the cafeteria to load up on food and takes some time to do some homework while he eats. He has a second round of work-outs in the afternoon six days a week and then heads to the tennis court for at least two hours six days a week. After practice he heads to the cafeteria to once again load up on as much food as possible. After dinner he has his power nap to prepare for studying for the rest of the night (thank God teenagers function at their best after ten p.m.)
