A wonderful thing was my membership in the Oak Brook Raquet and Fitness Club. I got to learn a lot of wonderful friends which made my stay appreciable as for social contacts. Still today - more than 15 years later - I benefit from what I learned in the tennis drills. Superfluous to mention the friendly atmosphere in a great environment.
Equipment: Tennis raquet
My most important activity was being a member of the Oakbrook Raquet and Fitness Club at the time of my one-year stay in West Chicago. The friendly atmosphere and the opportunity of making so many friends made me forget my home sickness I had the first weeks.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory is the great neighbourhood that my family and I experienced. Looking back today the stay influenced strongly the life of my sons who became students at Downers Grove Highschool. One of my sons even took up studies in the US and returned home with a B.Sc. degree.
