Practices, Involvement Fairs, and Travel Team Tryouts
September 8th, 2015 by Jon Mulvey

Practices, Involvement Fairs, and Travel Team TryoutsFor those of you who are returning, welcome back to another exciting year of DePaul University Club Tennis. For those of you who are joining us for the first time, welcome to the club.

I'm excited to announce that our first practice of the fall quarter will be on Tuesday, September 22nd at Lakeshore Sport and Fitness from 9:00 to 11:00pm. More information will be posted about practice as we get closer to the date.

As always, specifically for those of you who are incoming freshman, we will have a table at the Lincoln Park Student Involvement Fair this Friday, September 11th from 1:00 to 4:00pm on the Quad. If it rains, we'll be at the Ray Meyer Fitness and Recreation Center. Freshmen and new members can sign-up for the club, talk with me in person, ask questions of the other club officers, or just shoot the breeze about tennis here at DePaul.

For the first time ever, we will also be at the Loop Student Involvement Fair taking place on Thursday, September 17th from 1:00 to 4:00pm at DePaul Center downtown. Same rules apply: anyone is welcome to sign-up for the club and ask questions of me and my officers.

For those of you competitive types who are looking to tryout for our travel teams and run around the country representing DePaul against schools like Wisconsin, Michigan, Texas, and Arizona, please email me (jon@depaulclubtennis.org) as soon as possible to setup an individual tryout. Once practices get started, you will still have the opportunity to tryout, but an individual tryout will give you a chance to compete right away.

If you haven't already, click here to fill out our recruit questionnaire to let us know more about you.

I hope to see you soon.

News for Incoming Students and Returning Members
June 25th, 2015 by Jon Mulvey

News for Incoming Students and Returning MembersFirst off, I want to congratulate our travel team for a fantastic 2014/2015 season. We were 31-9 overall and 26-5 in the Midwest section-- both were the best records in the history of our club. We won our first tournament in October and finished the highest we ever have at both Sectionals and the Spring Invitational.

I also want to specifically recognize our Tuesday night recreational team. We had 30+ people at EVERY practice during the fall and winter quarters-- something with which I'm still struggling to come to grips. Your commitment was truly remarkable and you represent just how far we've come as a club over the past four years. We've gone from a club of five random tennis players with no money to one of the largest and most well-funded club sports on campus.

Want to be a part of this amazing club in the fall? Practices will start in early September. Specific details will be posted at the end of August. As usual, we will have a table at the Involvement Fair and we'll most likely hold a social event before the first practice. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me through email or social media.

Tryouts for both our A and B travel teams will be held throughout the month of September. If you are interested in trying out, please email me (jon@depaulclubtennis.org) for more information. We will be holding open outdoor hitting sessions for interested players on an as-needed basis this summer, so if you're in or around Chicago at any point, let me know and I'll get you out and hitting with current travel team members. Making a concerted effort to hit with us in the summer will earn you extra credit.

If you haven't yet filled out our recruiting form, make sure to do that as soon as possible so you can stay informed:

Join the Club!

Enjoy the summer and play tennis.

Ten Weeks of Winter Quarter News in a Single Post!
March 23rd, 2015 by Jon Mulvey

Ten Weeks of Winter Quarter News in a Single Post!Hopefully, most of you have been keeping up with the team on social media. We're on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, so you have no reason to be uninformed, even if I don't post here for ten weeks...

If you've been following along, you should already be aware that in late February, we had our USTA Midwest Sectional tournament in Madison, Wisconsin. We were seeded 7th overall (our highest seed ever!) and easily won our first two pool matches. Subsequently, after two tough losses to Indiana and Michigan, we rallied to win three straight to take the gold bracket backdraw, putting things right and beating Indiana in the process. We finished the tournament in 9th place with a 5-2 record overall.

Next up for our travel team? The USTA Spring Invitational in Tucson, Arizona. You can watch our videos from last year's tournament by clicking here.

Also in February, our resident club secretary and part-time rockstar, Andrea Kinnerk, and our former VP and current real estate mogul, Reid Mutschler, teamed up to win Chicago's annual 16-team Valentine's Day mixed doubles tournament at McFetridge Tennis Center. In the final, they beat a team with a former Notre Dame varsity player. YEAH.

Spring quarter practices start again on Tuesday, March 31st. If you paid your dues for winter quarter, they carry over into spring quarter. New members are always welcome. Email me at jon@depaulclubtennis.org if you're looking to join.

See you when it's warmer.
