I grew up on the sidelines of my parents' summer league games. Now I play for a club team that placed 5th in the northeast this year and has been a national champ in the past. I also play for the same summer league team my parents did (37 years old!).
Winter break, 2019, I came home and was sick for a week. So I played chess the whole time. And I've kept playing since (only sometimes getting better).
I've skied the northeast my whole life and sometimes go out west just to feel worse about the conditions here.
I played soccer until the end of high school and haven't had the time since. But I was awarded MVP of JV1 and JV2 my freshman year and MVDP (defensive player) of Varsity my senior year.
I started playing badminton end of high school and trained 10 hours a week for a few months. Now I play for fun when I can.
I played squash for a few years somewhere around middle school. My crowing achievement was winning the Marblehead YMCA snowflake holiday tournament.
