High Performance TEAM Participant
Billy Her started playing tennis three years ago at Merrill Park in Milwaukee. He had never played tennis before and his mom decided to sign him up for the Summer TEAM program because she wanted a sport that Billy could excel at and play for the rest of his life. Mrs. Her was also intrigued by the academic aspect of the program.
“I still remember the first day Billy came to the courts," said Amber Brickett, former Merrill Park site director. “He was very young, eight or nine years old, and he was small and very frail looking. I didn't think he would be able to get the ball over the net. Boy was I wrong, he was a little dynamo.”
