Thank You for the Practice, DePaul Women's Tennis!
November 5th, 2015 by Jon Mulvey

Thank You for the Practice, DePaul University Women's Tennis!First off, I need to start with a huge thank you to Coach Mark Ardizzone and DePaul University Women's Tennis. For the the third year in a row, Mark and I worked to organize a special joint practice between his girls and our full club at Lakeshore. Forty club members/friends participated and it was, I have to say, the best one yet. Long may these events continue. (Watch the video from the event on our YouTube channel.)

Also in the news since my last post in September, assuming you haven't followed along on social media, we had 67 people at our first practice of the year on Tuesday, September 22nd! That's the largest practice we've had in the history of our club. Everyone has been great the entire quarter, really--we've had over 40 people at every practice so far! Great, right?

On the competitive front, our travel team has gone 18-7 this fall at tournaments in Champaign, Milwaukee, and here in Chicago. It's not the best record we've ever had, but we had a lot of results of which we can be proud: our A team placed 4th at the 16-team Illini Invite in Champaign (in spite of the fact we only had one girl), our B team placed 3rd at the 16-team Cream City Classic in Milwaukee, and we went 4-0 at a recent 6-team event we hosted here in Chicago. We've still never lost a match at Lakeshore Sport and Fitness.

This weekend, we wrap up our fall travel schedule at the 32-team Badger Classic in Madison, Wisconsin. Our last practice of the fall is on Tuesday, November 17th before we pick back up at the start of January in 2016.

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.
