It is a priviledge for Schools That Rock to introduce Eunice Hich School’s 1st tennis team’s captain, Marinique de Kock, to the visitors of our website.
“I started with Tennis from the day I was able to walk and catch a ball. I am current no. 2, but I have played no. 1 in the past. I also was Captain of the 0/15b netball team.
I train 2 hours a week with my team, 1 hour a week with a private coach and 2 hours a week on my own.
I used to play netball as well, but currently I only have time to focus on one sport. I prefer to play individually, but it is nice having a team to support you. Which is why I love school tennis because you play your own game, but your team is there for support.
I feel my purpose is to encourage and support my team and to be an example to anyone that would want to learn to play tennis. I would like to play for the university while studying.”
