Isa pang sports na kayang-kaya nating mga Pili­pinong mag-excel ay ang Soft Tennis. Soft Tennis was founded in the Philippines in 1992 by Brigadier General Antonio Tamayo in UPHD. Since then, it became a member of National Sports Association ng Philippine Sports Commission.

Umani na ng maraming medalya ang ating National Soft Tennis Team sa World Championships (3 Bronze Medals in 1995, 2011 at 2015), Asian Championships (1 Silver, 8 Bronze Medals in 2005, 2012 at 2016) at SEA Games (1 Silver, 5 Bronze Medals in 2011).

For 2 consecutive World Championships, nasungkit ni Joseph Arcilla ang Bronze for Men’s Singles in 2011 at noong 2015 naman ay nakuha ni Bien Zoleta-Mañalac ang Bronze for Women’s Singles prior to its first Bronze Medal by Josephine Pagu­yoin 1995. Bukas ay lilipad ang team patu­ngong China para sa 16th World Champion­ships. Ang World Championships only happens every 4 years with 32-39 countries partici­pating in this event.

Pagkatapos nito ay pinaghahandaan ng team ang 30th SEA Games na magaganap dito sa Manila on December 7-10, 2019.

Inaasam na makakuha ng marami pang medalya sa World Championships, Asian Championships, Asian Games at SEA Games ng ating team. Nais din nilang dumami pa ang maging miyembro ng National Team mula sa grassroots program.

Kung ang hanap mo ay more challenging­ tennis game, endurance at flexibility, subu­kan na ang Soft Tennis. Kumpara sa Lawn Tennis na may 6 games at 3 sets, ang soft tennis ay may short 4 games with 1 set match that lasts from 20 minutes to an hour. At para sa mga bata that wants to secure their education in college, may sports scholarships para sa Soft Tennis athletes dahil kasama ito sa NCAA. Kasama rin ito sa Batang Pinoy at Philippine National Games.

Taos pusong pasasalamat sa Philippine Sports Commission, Philippine Olympic Committee, University of Perpetual Help System DALTA, Philippine Sports Medicine (Psychology Unit, Nutrition Unit, Rehabi­litation Unit and Strength and Conditioning­ Unit), Shangri-la Fort, Kerry Sports Manila, at Col.

Antonio Jeff Tamayo Jr., President of Philippine Soft Tennis Association sa patuloy na pagsuporta sa mahuhusay na atleta ng National Soft Tennis Team natin.

Have a safe trip to China, National Soft Tennis Team!!! Good luck and make us proud!!!
