After 13 weeks on tour the Deepstars are back on home turf. The tour was very successful for the team. They all gained invaluable experience and developed their games a great deal. Stephanie is now top 1000 in ITF which has been a huge step for her. She has a great strike rate in tournaments, 90% of the time improving her ranking.
The rest of the team are improving at a great rate, 2008 will see the rest of the Deepstars fly up the ranking ladder.
We now have two training bases in South America which we will be using on a annual basis. InDeep will be conducting tours to this region every year during oct/nov. The schedule will include a training week at the base, followed by ITF, Future and National Tournaments throughout South America. We have the edge there now as we have been there and done that so to speak, so our next tour will be even more successful as we have set up everything so we can just walk in and start next year.
The South American Officials have opened a welcoming door for In Deep International Athletes. In Deep would like to express a huge thank you to all the Officials at COSAT, and a special mention goes to Rodrigo Valdebenito, who were so helpful and accommodating for us everywhere we went.
The athletes are on a well earned break now and we look forward to starting our training with a bang just before christmas.
