See you on the courts,

Get to Know: Aidan Talcott

Can you give a brief overview of your tennis journey/ career?
"I transferred to William & Mary in my junior year from the University of Denver. I didn't start in my first match, but ended up playing #1 my senior year after training hard in the summer. I enjoyed playing here more than at the University of Denver. After college, I played on tour for a year, then coached in New York. Last season, I returned to the team as a volunteer assistant. I love working here with Jeff and the team that I consider my friends. It doesn't feel like a job."

What are the most important characteristics of a great coach?
"The ability to inspire each individual, make sure each guy is ready to go and willing to push on the hard days. Having patience, knowing that they’re going through things off court, and knowing when to push and back off. Understanding each of their games because they're all different from one another. One solution doesn't apply to everybody."

What was your major?
"Kinesiology. I plan to attend law school soon."

What are your hobbies and passions?
"Running. I've done two 50K's and plan on doing my first 50 miler in April. I also enjoy playing piano."

What is the most influential book you have read?
" Can't Hurt Me, by David Goggins. I also enjoy reading self-help books."

Where can you see yourself in 5 years? What do you want to achieve? 
"Studying law. Working in one of the bigger firms in New York."

Who inspires you every day?  
"My parents. My mom wakes up at 4:45 to catch the morning train and sends inspirational quotes to me and my siblings every day. My parents work hard and never complain."

What is your favorite quote?
"Quotes don’t make champions. Champions make quotes."

Who were/ are your mentors/ influencers?
"My mom, Coach Jeff, and Coach Parsa, my coach from home. They are my rocks."

What is your favorite aspect of Williamsburg?  
"Coming from New York, I am most at home in the fast paced chaos of the city, but I do appreciate the slow pace, nice people, and open feel of Williamsburg."

What is a fun fact about you that no one would guess?
"I was in the New York City Ballet's "Nutcracker" when I was 6 or 7 years old. I got the part because my older sister is an accomplished dancer, but my role was very minor."

What are you most looking forward to this season for the Tribe? 
"Biggest goal is to win CAA’s. Would like to fill the stands. As long as everyone keeps improving, we'll have a good season."
MNTC Member Highlight:
Hubert Evertz

You can find our Member of the Month Hubert Evertz enjoying the game of tennis four to five times a week and volunteering in our ACEing Autism program.

Who are your favorite pro players?
"Federer and Djokovic because of their personalities."

How would you describe tennis in as few words as possible?
"Good exercise."

Have you played any other sports?
"Prior to tennis, I played soccer."

What are your biggest achievements in the sport? "When I lived in Germany many years ago, I won a few singles and doubles tournaments."

Can you describe your ACEing Autism volunteer experience?
"It is a challenge for the players and volunteers, but it is a good experience to see their enthusiasm as they learn how to play tennis."

What are your tennis goals?
"Enjoy it, have fun, and stay healthy."
