Gary Nicholls is entering his 17th year as head coach at BHAC and has been instrumental in the program‘s growth and expansion. He has previously been the head coach of the JV Girls tennis team at Groves High School and head coach of both the Boys and Girls teams at Berkshire Middle School. He coached the Varsity Boys and Girls teams at Farmington High School for six years before retiring in 2013 to be a soccer dad. Retirement lasted until he helped Groves by coaching the Varsity Girls team for the 2014 season, and then assisted with the Groves JV Boys team during the fall of 2015. He is a certified instructor through the U.S. Professional Tennis Association and has been a USTA member since 1989.  Gary is also the league director for the entire NOCSSL.

Tom “TK” Kuskowski is certified by the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) as a teaching professional. This year will mark TK’s 17th year coaching the Juniors Program and youth clinics at BHAC.  TK also runs adult programs for BHAC members which includes the women’s Intra-Club tennis league, twice weekly ladies drill & play clinics, and weekly men’s drill & play clinics.   During the spring and fall tennis seasons, TK coaches the Varsity Girls and Boys teams at Farmington High School. 

David Barnas begins his first full season coaching tennis at BHAC after serving as an assistant to Coach TK last summer for the Tuesday night and Sunday morning adult drill classes. David and his wife Kathy, along with their two daughters (Callie and Nikki, who is a former BHAC Shark swimmer), have been members of the BHAC family for more than 20 years. David was Tennis Director at BHAC from 2016 – 2017. David is currently the head coach for the Mercy High School JV tennis team, and works as a substitute coach during the fall and winter at the Beverly Hills Club. A long-time tennis player, David has played on numerous USTA teams and the Men’s League at BHAC. David completed his USTA Level 1 coaching certification last year – including Safe Sport approval — and hopes to become PTR certified in the coming year.

Alec Maynard is a freshman at Michigan State University and is an active member of the MSU club tennis team. This fall, he will transfer to Hope College to play on the Hope Men’s Tennis Team while pursuing his education in the Professional Tennis Management Program. Alec served as an assistant coach at Walnut Creek Country club prior to joining BHAC. Alec was an All State doubles player and an MHSAA Division 1 State Champion at 3 Singles while attending Detroit Catholic Central High School, where he graduated in 2023. Alec has experience coaching both group and private lessons and looks forward to a great summer at BHAC.
