Former Wheelock Men's Tennis Player Taking His Message on the Tour
March 22, 2013
In a span of five years, Dash Kramer went from the warm, sandy beaches of Malibu, California to playing tennis at Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts and now in development for a reality show with the Bravo Network called, "A Dash of Tennis", chronicling his journey for a spot on the professional world tennis circuit.
Kramer just happened to be in the right place at the right time when a coach told him about a school in Boston, that was starting a male athletics program for the 2007-08 campaign.
"When I was training out on the West Coast, I had met a coach that knew that there was a basketball and tennis program starting there (Wheelock College)," explained Kramer. "That's basically how I heard about it. He knew they were going to have a tennis program and that I could also be part of the basketball team, if I was interested in playing both."
Being able to play both tennis and basketball at Wheelock really appealed to Kramer. Once he got to the Boston school, he enjoyed playing basketball for the Wildcats, but discovered that tennis was where his heart was at.
"I found that I was really passionate about tennis, so that's when I really started to focus on tennis," said Kramer.
