Pedro says “It all began in 7th grade when I was just wandering around the school… and I saw a coach and a tennis team practicing and he asked me if I wanted to hit some, I hit some and it seemed really fun to me…I put some effort in it and it became on of my favorite sports and this is how it turned out.”
