After returning for his third year at Julian Krinsky School of Tennis, Chris Meek enjoyed his time at the summer tennis camp so much so he hopes to become a counselor for the following summer. As a residential camper he enjoyed the weekend trips, the free time to play ultimate frisbee, evening activities like counselor manhunt, and meeting new people from all over the world. He had great experiences as a summer tennis camper at JKCP and hopes to bring the same fun experiences to future campers.
Chris found that the JKST summer tennis program helped him to focus better in life in general and provided an outlet. “You get to be outside, around nature, and it’s just a fun sport to play because you get to interact with friends too.” As a student of JKST, he finds it most helpful that students work on their personalized electives and fitness in the mornings, and then in the afternoon they are able to put to use what they worked on earlier in the day when they play matches. “It’s a nice balance of everything.” He found the hardest part of his time spent at the summer tennis camp was playing tennis for six weeks, but he knows his game has improved tremendously and he had fun along the way.
He greatly admires Nick Kyrgios, a 20 year old Australian tennis player, and would love to meet him one day. On his bucket list he would like to go sky diving, live in Europe for a month, and become the President of the United States.
When asked if he was able to spend the whole day with Julian what would he want to do, he said “Go to Six Flags and make him get on a roller coaster. Afterwards we would go to Beat Street and dance.” Sounds like a fun day to us!
