Tennis Practice with Taylor Ingber

Tennis player Taylor Ingber ties her shoes before taking to the courts at Tamaques Park in Westfield, N.J. A sophomore biology major at the University of Maryland, Ingber used to play here in her varsity high school tennis days.

Ingber warms up for practice by bouncing a tennis ball with her racquet. Ingber has been playing tennis since elementary school, inspired by her dad, who is also a tennis player.

Ingber jumps to hit a flying tennis ball, just missing it. While she practices over spring break solo, Ingber usually plays doubles, and sometimes practices playing singles against her dad.

Ingber takes a break to stretch and poses on the courts at Tamaques Park. While she used to play club tennis her freshman year, she had to take a break to keep up with her pre-med coursework at school.
