Spirit of the Game
We are a very close group of kids that definitely know how to create a fun and laid back atmosphere while also aiming to improve our game.The combined men and women's playing style brings a unique experience that most of us didn't get to play in high school. We aim to bring people who like tennis together, not just to get better at their game, but to make friends and enjoy the sport.
One interest meeting at the start of each semester. Fall meeting will be in early September.
All of our players have playing experience in high school and most of us in junior tournaments as well. The tennis club has an "A" and a "B" team. In matches, our "A" team start 7 guys and 7 girls and we have about 3-4 alternates for both sides. For our "B" team, we start 4 guys and 4 girls with 3 alternates for each side. Typically we have about 20 men and 20 women.
The club tennis seasons are both fall and spring with practices typically Monday-Thursday from approx. 3:30-5 at the courts behind the Little Bob. We may also have night practices from 8-10 PM at the varsity courts at Delaware Field House.
National and/or Regional Affiliation
Middle States Section of the USTA (United States Tennis Association). We also compete in the National Campus Championship, which is sponsored by NIRSA, held in mid-April.
Two practices a week are mandatory and each player must pay dues for the entire year. Dues last year were $50.
We provide balls for practices but each played is expected to have his/her own tennis equipment. Obviously players can lend rackets to other players if needed.
