Hong Kong National Rugby Team(U19)
People get startled when Tanya casually mentions that she plays rugby for Hong Kong. A soft spoken, but a no nonsense girl with steely determination started playing rugby when she was barely 5 years old.
It wasn’t rugby always though. She started with tennis and continued rigorous tennis lessons 3 times a week for about 4 years till she fell in love with rugby. Her father Manoj Dhar has always been there to support her choices. However once she chose rugby, then come rain or sun, he would take her for training. Now she is thankful that he did! Tanya was selected for the Hong Kong national team (Under 19’s) as soon as she turned 16 last year. She is among the youngest players to have made a mark in Hong Kong rugby.
We as community are all proud of you. Your achievements are fantastic. Keep it up dear.
