Terry (Fairfield, CT) and Liam (Westport, CT) are headed into their third year as partners on the junior circuit. Both competitive tennis players, Liam has given up playing competitive hockey to be able to play more paddle. He still plays baseball and soccer, but paddle is his favorite! He loves the different tournaments on the Viking junior circuit and getting the chance to meet other juniors from outside his region.

Terry spends plenty of his time playing many sports including soccer and water polo. He is currently in training for his first triathlon and figures the 3-mile run will be the hardest part. His favorite athlete is Andre Agassi and he loves the Yankees. His favorite classes are gym and geography, while Liam enjoys math class the most and says Arthur Ashe is his favorite athlete!

Terry and Liam played many of the Viking junior events last year and look forward to playing even more this year. Besides their win at The Nationals last season, they also won The Patterson Tournament and The Fox Meadow Tournament.

Liam thinks his Viking championship chair was the coolest trophy he ever won in his life and uses it daily when sitting at his computer. Terry’s chair is in his room but gets used mostly for his laundry. Both have their gold medals prominently displayed on the walls in their rooms.
