Hi, my name is Steyn Dippenaar. I’m a South African tennis player aspiring to start my tertiary studies at a university in the United States in January 2023. I started playing tennis at the age of 4 and reached a ranking of number 6 in South Africa for under 18 boys at the end of my junior career.
From the moment I first picked up a racket, tennis has been a major source of happiness for me. Fortunately, I am a part of a family with many tennis coaches which provided me with the opportunity of always having somebody to play with and learn from. My grandmother taught me how to play tennis and my dad has been my head coach for the last 8 years. Ever since I went to high school in 2017 and started participating in team-format tennis events, it has truly been my dream to play college tennis. Being able to attend university in the States and subsequently play college tennis would be the perfect opportunity for me to develop my game and give me the necessary exposure required for the aspirations that I have when it comes to my future in tennis.
I started this "gofundme" page to help my family with the financial requirements of reaching my dreams as they currently cannot afford it. They have always provided me with nothing but love and support when it comes to my tennis and it would be the biggest privilege if I was able to reciprocate my love and appreciation for them by reducing some of the financial burden. Your support could help me in achieving my dream and developing my tennis to its full potential: an opportunity I will be eternally grateful for.
