A Message from NJD President, Nancy Wilkins

NancywilkinsTennis has been a huge part of my life. I got my first racquet from my grandparents when i was 6 years old, but my sister was the one who really encouraged me to play when I was in eighth grade. Although I love to play tennis, my passion has always been teaching. Tennis has done so many things for me, that it's a pleasure to pass that on to others. It truly thrills me when a student continues to stay involved in the game through high school, college and life. That assures me that there is one more ambassador to share the passion and pay it forward. 

Special Olympics has made a big impact on me as well. Working with those athletes, as well as having grown up in a home where tennis was FUN, has taught me so many things; passion, drive, humility, work ethic and sportsmanship, to name a few. I see them practice and compete and it inspires me on a daily basis. They are some of the most courageous athletes I know. They, long with my parents, are my heroes. 

It is both humbling and exciting to take on this task as President of the New Jersey District. I have been handed a phenomenal group of people with whom to work. Every board member shares the passion and love for the game and we hope to implement many new things within the district. One goal of our board is to simply raise the awareness that we are here for you and we want to help. So please, check out our Facebook page and website and spread the word.

I appreciate the opportunity and look forward to the challenge. 

Nancy Wilkins
