Josh’s Fresh Take: September Edition

How’s It Going, How’s It Going?

Coach and Communications Lead, Josh Martin, weighs in on topics in the world of tennis and shares his two cents.

Summer camps wrapped up last week here at the UBC Tennis Centre. We experienced a jam-packed July and August that went by incredibly fast. As a tennis coach, it is our duty to keep energy levels high so that campers can get the best possible experience. Exerting high levels of energy full-time for nine consecutive weeks can prove to be a difficult task. However, what makes this so much easier is working beside some of the most supportive individuals I have had the privilege of meeting. One of those individuals goes by the name of Coach Kenny. He was always there to answer questions, give you a supportive nudge on and off the court, and rock a Hawaiian shirt on “Hawaiian Fridays”. Kenny was the kind of coach that led by example, which in my mind is the best way to lead.

After a few years here at the UBC Tennis Centre, Kenny has moved on to pursue other endeavors. We wish Kenny all the best and his time here will not be forgotten. “Hawaiian Fridays” during summer camps will continue to live on for years to come.

On behalf of everyone at the UBC Tennis Centre, I would like to thank Kenny for not only being a great coach on court, but also a great coach off the court for individuals like myself that want to continue to learn how to be a strong leader.

Until next time, my friend.
