Coaches Corner: Camels Visit AHOF Member Tim Smith '90 at Longwood Cricket Club

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.--A sunny crisp day was the perfect weather for our second annual trip to Longwood Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill, Mass. 

A Connecticut College Tennis Hall of Famer, Tim Smith '90, organized a fantastic day of grass court play for our men's and women's tennis teams.  For most of the team members, this was their first time stepping foot on a grass court. Intermixed with diving, sliding, and falling over the lawn, the student-athletes had some very competitive singles, doubles and mixed doubles play.

After a catered middle-eastern buffet on the clubhouse porch, we began to master the intricacies of lawn tennis in the afternoon.

This memorable tradition was a huge success and will continue again next year.
