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.

Winter Quarter Practices Start January 20th!
January 12th, 2015 by Jon Mulvey


Winter Quarter Practices Start January 20th!Welcome back, everyone! I hope you all had a pleasant winter break. Now that it's over, I hope you're excited to get back to the most important part of your weekly schedule: Tuesday night club tennis practice!

Practices for the winter quarter will start next week Tuesday, January 20th at 9:00pm at Lakeshore Sport and Fitness. Dues will still be $40 and they will cover you for the rest of the year.

Here are all of the specifics:

Date:  Tuesday, January 20th
Time:  9:00 to 11:00pm
Location:  Lakeshore Sport and Fitness
Address:  1320 W. Fullerton Ave.
Notes:  See below!


Like in the fall, if you plan on attending next Tuesday night, you need to make sure you're aware of a few very important things:

#1 - The winter club dues are $40, the same as the fall, and they MUST be paid in full before your first practice. If you don't pay, you can't attend practice. Once you've paid, you will be good to go until our season is over at the end of April.

#2 - Please plan on arriving 15-20 minutes early so you have enough time to take care of check-in.

#3 - New members are welcome! Even if you weren't able to join in the fall, you're still able to join for the winter quarter. Just show up on the 20th with your dues, fill out a bit of paperwork, and you're in the club.

If you have any questions about practice, how to get there, or what you need to bring, please feel free to email me at jon@depaulclubtennis.org and I'll get back to you right away.

We'll see you on January 20th!

We Won a Tournament!/Fall Quarter Wrap-Up
November 18th, 2014 by Jon Mulvey


We Won a Tournament!/Fall Quarter Wrap-UpTo start off, a huge congratulations to our illustrious travel team which won its first ever major tournament title at the 16-team Milwaukee Lakefront Invitational in late October. We've never won anything competitive before, so that's a pretty big deal!

On a related note of success, two weeks later at the Badger Classic in Madison, we finished in 6th place out of 32 teams-- our best ever showing in four previous appearances. On Friday, we went 3-0 and won our pool despite being the bottom seed. On Saturday, we beat the #4 ranked team in the country from last year (Purdue) on our way to finishing in 6th place. Those results brought our overall record for the fall to an impressive 15-5 (and 14-3 in the Midwest!). Now onto Sectionals in February.

As most of you should already know, tonight will be the last practice of the fall quarter. Information for winter quarter practices will be posted in late December/early January, so make sure to check back for more.

From the top on down, travel team, rec team, EVERYONE, this has been the best fall quarter we've ever have. Thank you for your effort and enjoy winter break.

Thank You, DePaul University Women's Tennis
October 23rd, 2014 by Jon Mulvey


Thank You, DePaul University Women's TennisFirst of all, thank you to everyone who has come out to practices so far this fall! They've been a huge success. Our first practice on September 23rd brought out 62 PEOPLE, 20 more than we've ever had before, and we've had 40+ at every practice since. It's amazing.

Secondly, I'd like to extend a huge thank you to Coach Ardizzone and DePaul University Women's Tennis for running our club practice on Saturday, October 11th. This is the second year they've been kind enough to run us around court for two hours and this year's practice was better than the last. I'm pretty sure we're one of a select few, if not the only club in the country that gets to do something like this on an annual basis. Thank you Coach Ardizzone for your support. From the top on down, we all appreciate it!

Thirdly, head on over to the schedule page to check out our travel team's results from the first couple tournaments of the fall. In September, we finished 4th out of 16 teams at the Illini Invite in Champaign. The following weekend, we finished 2nd at the 8-team Crusader Invite in Valparaiso, Indiana. This weekend, we're at the Panther Prowl in Milwaukee.

If you haven't already, check out the link below which will take you to a YouTube video of Andrea and Temi killing it at mixed doubles in Champaign. More videos from the fall are coming soon, so stay tuned to our channel.
