Zsilinszka's Vietnam Experience

Reka Zsilinszka, a sophomore on the Duke tennis team, spent three weeks this summer in Vietnam, as an ambassador for the newly-created Coach For College Program. The brainchild of former Duke women's tennis player Parker Goyer, Coach for College is a humanitarian project that sends Duke and UNC student-athletes to rural Vietnam to serve as teachers and mentors in sports camps, with a goal of connecting sport and higher education. Colette Lewis spoke with Zsilinszka and teammate Amanda Granson about their upcoming trip in July for the Tennis Recruiting Network, and today, Zsilinszka provides this photo album of her experience there.

 

These were two of the more athletic sixth and seventh graders that my fellow teacher Ben, also a student-athlete at Duke, and I introduced to the sport of tennis. As leaders of the 20-member blue team, we did what we could to explain the concept of tennis, which none of them had seen or heard of before. Just to see balls on racquets was a good sign.

 

The red team was so enthusiastic; it was fun to be around them. They weren't the best team, but they were always excited about trying. The racquets came from everywhere. Parker collected them and we all brought something when we came.
