How good to I have to be?
Firstly, there are opportunities for everyone! There are many current tour professionals who have come through the college system, so it can be a great stepping stone onto the professional tour. Equally, there are thousands of opportunities for county, regional and national players wishing to pursue a degree and improve their tennis as much as possible.
When should I start the process?
We recommend you start the process as early as possible. This gives you the opportunity to make changes to your training or competitive schedule if it is required. If you have any questions about timing, please speak with one of our experts.
Are there full scholarships available?
Yes, for the most talented athletes. You will most likely find full scholarship offers at Division 1 level and you will need to be playing at a National level as a junior most likely. In general, there are more scholarships available for women than men due to NCAA rules.
What can I expect while I am a student athlete?
As a tennis scholarship athlete you can expect to train at least 5 days a week for anywhere between 2 and 4 hours per day. This will include on court sessions, possible individual sessions as well as strength and conditioning. The main competitive season is in the Spring, when most of the Dual Matches between other universities will take place.
