Dan Tristao

As a kid, Dan had dreams of becoming a professional tennis player. But when his hopes were crushed by several coaches telling him that he had no backhand, he scoured the earth for a sport that would allow him to hit a forehand on both sides. At the age of 15, he broke into St Paul’s School to play fives for the first time, and never looked back.
