Captain Idarmis Cucurullo, along with team members Mirtha De Marchena, Magadelena Cavazos, Diana Porcella, Sandra Russian, Xiomara Suarez, Sandra and Chavela Castillo often play in tennis tournaments within Casa de Campo as local residents who enjoy the sport, but have excelled with flying colors when invited to represent Casa de Campo as a team throughout other parts of the Dominican Republic as well. Taking home wins in Punta Cana and now La Bocha, Captain Idarmis Cucurullo says it is all due in part to their wonderful coach, Emilio Vasquez:
We have to thank our coach Emilio for this great victory. There were over 50 female players representing their clubs from Santo Domingo at the 1st Presidente Tournament Cup. Although Casa de Campo does not have an official team, we are always happy to represent our community when we play as a group outside of Casa de Campo. Our team finished undefeated in the A League of the tournament after an entire week of matches, and we have to thank our coach and Casa de Campo Tennis Pro, Emilio Vasquez for his patience, coaching, training, techniques and for believing in us!
– Captain Idarmis Cucurullo de Velasquez
