Description of Regular Meetings/Activities

We hold practices Monday-Thursday and Sunday 5:30-7pm at the Forker Tennis Courts across from Lied, as weather permits. Each practice is optional to attend and will be structured with group games, matches, or drills.

Description of Special Events

We have a competitive traveling team that plays at home and away at several different universities throughout the country! These meets/tournaments are usually in the World Team Tennis (WTT) format. This consists of 5 matches between head to head teams: 2 doubles (men's and women's), 2 singles, and then 1 mixed doubles. Each match is a 6 game set with no ad and a 9-point tiebreaker at 5-5. Further rules will be explained! The players on the competitive team are chosen through tryouts which occur early in the Fall.
