CEDAR CITY, Utah – The Southern Utah Men’s Tennis Program and head coach Sadhaf Pucher are excited to announce the addition of Jake Williams to the Thunderbird family.

Williams comes to SUU from North London in the United Kingdom. Williams is currently a nationally ranked player in the UK, as he is currently ranked No. 37 in the U18 division. His UK rating is a 1.2 and he holds a Universal Tennis Rating of 12.  

“Jake Williams is a great addition to our program. He loves the sport of tennis and is constantly competing in the UK,” Pucher said. “The Junior Circuit in England has a very high level of junior players right now on the boy’s side, so Jake is use to a high level of competition. With our developmental program and his aggressive style of play, I believe he will be an impact player in our lineup next year.”

Apart from winning junior national events, Williams also recently won a senior singles event. Williams has competed at the highest level, and he has engaged in playing ITF events by qualifying into main draws. His parents are Lesley and Simon Williams.
