One year I took 20 juniors from Wilson to the Raleigh Racket Club.
A “junior clinic” was scheduled at the stadium court. The only problem was
a 15-year-old Tim Wilkison was playing the number one college player
from the University of Alabama at the stadium court.
Though Tim was outsized, he patiently dismantled his opponent right
in front of our youngsters. The only problem was it took a long time. At
the match’s completion I told our crowd to “load up the van.” An assistant asked, “Coach, what about the clinic?” I replied, “We just saw Tim put on a
clinic.” Plus, people from Wilson get hungry.
