Will J started playing tennis at the age of five in Nikki’s junior class, and he has been a part of her program ever since. He has been with Nikki as a teacher in training for four years. He is starting his third year as an assistant. He is a junior at Harvard-Westlake School and a doubles player for his school’s varsity team. What he loves most about teaching is to see a kid light up with a smile, having made a shot for the first time. Will has transformed from the little kid seeing how far over the back fence he could hit the tennis balls into a leader and a wonderful role model and leader for the juniors. (Makes Nikki happy when he has to deal with little boys trying to hit balls over the fence!!) He plays in many junior So Cal tournaments. He is academically driven and does well in school. Like most coaches he speaks several languages.
