Tufts Club Tennis is a Tier II club sports team that represents Tufts University. Our goal as a team is to provide a fun and social environment for nonvarsity undergraduate tennis players to play competitive tennis with a reasonable time commitment.
Team History: Tufts Club Tennis is entirely student run. Practices are held twice a week, with matches on weekends, depending on availability of courts and transportation. The organization was recognized by the Tufts Athletics Department in September 2009 as the first Tier II Club Sport.
We encourage everyone to tryout, regardless of skill level. One of the missions of club tennis has always been to provide everyone with an opportunity to play tennis at Tufts. Although we can no longer support everyone at our practices, we would like to retain the contact information of everyone interested in order to establish tennis connections for those unable to participate on the club team.
These past couple of years, interest in Tufts Club Tennis has grown incredibly fast. Unfortunately, because our resources are limited, we are no longer able to support such a large number of individuals. As a result, Tufts Club Tennis will be hosting tryouts and making cuts. We hope to not only increase our competitive level, but also generate a more devoted and bonded team.
One of the primary goals of the team is to field the best possible competitive team that we can for participation in the USTA Tennis on Campus league matches. The Tennis on Campus league is a national organization of college club tennis teams, and we compete against other schools in the New England section for a bid to the National Campus Championships. We attended our first National Campus Championships in April 2011 in Cary, NC and finished 42nd out of the 64 teams as the only entrant from a Division III school. This year we placed 3rd in the sectional tournament and earned a bid to play in this year's national tournament in Arizona! We placed 46th out of 64 teams.
