About

Daan is a bright, positive and mature guy who knows what it is like to compete at the highest national and international levels. He is an aggressive player, always looking to use his left hand to push his opponents outside of the court and finish the point at the net. Hard working and ambitious, we would not be surprised to see Daan as a future D1 team captain - he takes initiative, is ambitious and eager to see others succeed alongside him.

Daan has always been one of the top juniors in the Netherlands. In 2019, he reached a career high of #3 under 16, allowing him to travel to the international summer and winter cups where he played against the best juniors from Europe. In 2019, he also became national champion in doubles play for the second time in his junior career. Despite his recurring successes, Daan is always looking for better and sees much room for improvement in his game: defensive shot selection, anticipation and intensity consistency. He is eager to improve those areas in a professional environment in the United States where he is also able to pursue a challenging college degree that matches his outstanding academic achievements.

Part of Daan's upbringing was in an international environment, including his 12 years at the European School in Bergen and Luxemburg. As a result, he is fluent in English and conversational in French, in addition to his mother language Dutch.
