Darcy Nicholls signs with Samford University


Darcy Nicholls has signed with Samford University in Alabama on a tennis scholarship commencing in September 2022.

Nicholls was deciding between several schools but chose Samford on the back of a few different factors.

“They offered me a great scholarship which certainly helps financially and after speaking to coach Oliver, I will have more opportunities to play singles and doubles straight away in my freshman year at Samford."

Nicholls, from Warragul Victoria, is currently playing Grade 1 Pennant for KLTC and training hard in the lead up to his college experience.

“I am looking forward to furthering my studies, developing my tennis game and experiencing a different culture in the States.”

Nicholls joins 15 other Kooyong Foundation scholarship players who are on tennis scholarships at American universities.
