Will’s Tennis Story
I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee playing USTA tournaments around the Southern Section until age 14. I sort of got burned out, but still played for my high school team for a few months each year before graduating at 18.
From there, I decided to come back to the game full time, committing to play collegiate tennis for Birmingham-Southern College. I played all four years and was coached by former top 100 doubles player, Paul Rosner. In my college career I reached #3 in our team singles rankings and #1 in doubles.
After college, I left the game for a while before moving to Austin, Texas in 2015. I began playing USTA leagues and tournaments around the state as a way to meet people in a new city. It was then, that I fell back in love with tennis, and specifically doubles. I started Tennis Tribe shortly after in 2016 as a simple doubles blog and newsletter. Since then, I’ve learned everything I can about doubles with a heavy focus on tactics and strategy that help players win. I’ve also expanded my knowledge of the sport to tennis racquets, shoes, and other gear.
