Kastles are ready for 2010!

26 03 2010

 

 Hey Kastles Fans! We’re getting ready to do it again in 2010!

Coach Murphy here and I am back and so are Serena, Leander and Rennae from last year’s 2009 World Champion Washington Kastles!!! But there’s more…a lot more…for starters, not only will I have the chance to coach Serena, Leander and Rennae, we also traded for: Venus Williams and drafted Americans Bobby Reynolds and Angie Haynes! THIS YEAR’S TEAM ROCKS!!!!!!!!!

I think it’s the best and most experienced team in the history of World TeamTennis.  Our roster has 61 Grand Slam titles and a stunning arsenal of talent.  To have both Williams sisters battling for the Washington Kastles is unbelievable! It’s such an honor to be part of the best organization in World TeamTennis!

Now it’s time for me to rally the greatest fans in the league to get everyone excited for 2010!  We kick off the season at home on July 6th, so get your season tickets right now. We have the best team on the planet. We have the best stadium in World TeamTennis. You know we have the best FANS in the World!!! And you know the KASTLES have the best COACH in the World!!!

Tell your friends, wake up the neighbors…it’s Kastles tennis and that means we Refuse to Lose! It’s going to be tough because every team in the league will be gunning for us. But if you want to be a part of something special, if you want to do something special, come out and cheer on your Washington Kastles and I promise it will be an experience that you will never forget!

Kastles Are WTT Champions!!

29 07 2009

Hey Kastles Fans!

Oh, I’m sorry –  Kastles World Champion Fans!

Coach Murphy here and I want to thank you for an amazing season and your amazing support and energy each and every night we played – both home and away! This is not my team, this is your team! And you were just as important to us winning as the forehands and backhands that were hit on the court. We are World Champions now and for me, this experience has been the best tennis memory of my life!

It’s only been a couple of days since we won and I’m still blown away at how incredible it feels to win the championships! What about Olga and Scott O? Isn’t that incredible how they improved and came through in the playoffs?! And Rennae and Leander and all their leadership! How cool is it that when you come to a Kastles match you get a chance to not only root for your team but you also get to know the team personally?

And you – the fans – became a part of the Kastles team every night! The Kastles fans became Olga’s first serve and the Kastles fans became Scott Oudsema’s first volley! And way to go Leander for becoming the MVP of the league and super COME ON to Scott Oudsema for being crowned MVP of the Championship Match! Awesome!

This season is an experience I will never forget and I have you to thank for it! I’m looking forward to next season and beyond and I’m thinking dynasty! The Kastles team and fans are World Champions and next season we will be defending Champions! So stay close to us and keep visiting my blog and the Washington Kastles website! And don’t forget as you play tennis this summer that we shared something special!

As always…REFUSE TO LOSE!

Yours truly,

COACH Murphy!!!!
