  • Ryan Hamel's profile photo
    Travel Team Captain
    Ryan is a sophomore majoring in Biobehavioral Health and has played tennis since he was 7 years old. After a few years of playing both tennis and baseball, he had to decide between the two when it came to high school. He decided to play tennis and it was a great decision because his team ended up winning the state tournament during his senior year after being runners up the year before. Something he loves about club tennis is how every practice is fun and stress free with everyone being so friendly and welcoming. He is looking forward to a great year with club tennis and can’t wait to meet all the new faces.
