National Women’s Tennis Organization Member Spotlight: Brandi Bratek

While we have all experienced LOVE on the court (not scoring in a game or set), few of us have been so lucky as to share the court with our one true love. Brandi Bratek has experienced just that and has a shiny ITF World Championship Mixed Doubles gold medal as proof!

Brandi, a competitor in the 45s age group, grew up in Brunswick, GA. Her dad was a college basketball coach, but also a lover of tennis, and he started tossing her tennis balls when she was just 3 years old.  Back then there were no kids’ racquets, so she played with a wooden racquetball racquet. She had to use two hands on both sides to swing the heavy racquet, and to this day she still hits a two-handed forehand.
