Fall Quarter Practices Start on September 19th!
August 22nd, 2017 by Jon Mulvey

Fall Quarter Practices Start on September 19th!Finally! Back with news! School is starting again soon and that means only one thing: time to finalize all of your plans for the upcoming club tennis season.

Let's start with a recap: If you haven't been paying attention to our various social media channels, you may not be aware that this previous February saw our club win the 2017 USTA Midwest Tennis on Campus Club of the Year award. This gave us an automatic bid to the 2017 USTA Tennis on Campus National Championship at the new USTA National Campus in Orlando in April. The previous week, we competed at the 2017 USTA Tennis on Campus Spring Invitational in Phoenix, Arizona. Wondering what happened? We vlogged everyday of both tournaments. You can check them out on our YouTube channel.

Anyway, now that fall is almost here, we've announced our schedule for September. This includes the Student Involvement Fair, Travel Team Tryouts, and the first practice of the year, which will be held at Lakeshore Sport and Fitness on Tuesday, September 19th from 9:00 to 11:00pm.

More information regarding all of the above is forthcoming, but, for now, the form is live to sign-up for both the first practice and travel team tryouts (click here!). Space is limited this year, so make sure to sign-up as soon as possible to reserve your spot at practice!

As always, stay tuned to Facebook and Twitter for the most up-to-date information and announcements.

Coach Ardizzone Talks to Us About Tennis on Campus!
February 13th, 2017 by Jon Mulvey

DePaul University Women's Tennis Coach Mark Ardizzone Talks to Us About USTA Tennis on Campus!Quick update today covering a couple of different things going on with the club: an interview with Coach Ardizzone, our recent volunteer work, and Midwest Sectionals.

Last month, we stopped by DePaul University Women's Tennis Head Coach Mark Ardizzone's office to talk to him about tennis here at DePaul, how having a successful club team like ours positively affects the varsity tennis programs, and what he loves most about the opportunities the USTA has created with its Tennis on Campus program. We've been extremely fortunate
to have had Mark's support on several different levels over the past few years and we really couldn't be where we are without him. Check out the interview on our YouTube channel by clicking here! It's well worth a couple minutes your time.

This past weekend, we partnered with the Chicago District Tennis Association to put on our first ever USTA Play Day at The Ray. The event was a huge success and we're already looking forward to the next one in May! More volunteer/community service events coming soon!

Finally, USTA Midwest Sectionals are this weekend in Madison, Wisconsin! We're seeded #7 out of 32 teams. Follow along on all of our various social media accounts to stay up-to-date on how we progress: Facebook / Twitter / Instagram

Winter Quarter Practices Start January 10th!
January 9th, 2017 by Jon Mulvey

Winter Quarter Practices Start January 10th!Welcome back, everyone! Welcome to Club Tennis 2017. As the title of this post states, winter quarter practices start up again tomorrow, January 10th, at Lakeshore Sport and Fitness on Fullerton.

Those of you who are returning members know the drill: bring $50 with you to cover the club dues and you're all set for the rest of winter quarter. For those of you who are new, all you need to do is show up to practice! We'll have you fill out a waiver, and once you've paid your $50 in club dues, you're a full member of the club. There are no skill requirements and we don't cut anyone. As mentioned above, practices are held at Lakeshore Sport and Fitness (1320 W. Fullerton Ave.) from 9:00 to 11:00pm, every Tuesday night throughout the quarter. Included with your dues is a free t-shirt, which our friend Roger is modeling in the picture above.

We have a lot of exciting events coming up this quarter, both on and off the court, so stay tuned to the website and our social media accounts to stay informed. If you have any questions whatsoever, please don't hesitate to ask! All of the relevant contact information is available here.

Thanks Again to DePaul University Women's Tennis!
October 17th, 2016 by Jon Mulvey

Thanks Again to DePaul University Women's Tennis!Last Sunday, for the fourth time in as many years, our club had the immense privilege of having one of our practices run by Coach Mark Ardizzone and the DePaul University Women's Tennis team.

As I've said a million times before in a million different posts on this site and our social media accounts, I can't even begin to tell you how lucky we have been to hold this event with our varsity team. As far as I'm aware, we're still the only club team in the country that gets to participate in an event like this. All of the credit goes to Coach Ardizzone, who constantly goes above and beyond in the support of our club and of tennis here on campus at DePaul. I'll say it again for what it's worth--thank you, Mark, for giving so much back.

In our own effort to give back to the community, our executive board braved a monsoon yesterday morning to volunteer at Apna Ghar's Stride Against Violence 5K in Montrose Harbor. This is the second year we've been able to donate our time and money to the cause of ending domestic violence. If you're reading this post and looking for ways to volunteer your time for the greater good of our Chicago community, please feel free to reach out to me. We're making a concerted effort as a club to volunteer as much as we can this academic year.

A video with highlights from the women's team practice is coming soon, but, for now, click the link below to visit our YouTube channel and watch the videos from previous years.
