There are over 1100 women’s and 950 men’s tennis programs in American college sport. It is one of the most competitive sporting environments at the collegiate level and regarded by most amateurs as the premier environment to develop your game. Many American colleges recruit internationally in an attempt to identify previously unknown talent and hold a competitive edge over their rivals.
Earning a tennis scholarship will allow you the opportunity to pursue both an academic and tennis career simultaneously. This means that you will be studying for a university degree – in a subject of your choice – whilst training and competing at an elite level, akin to that of professional tennis.
A tennis scholarship can cover many, sometimes all, of the costs associated with earning a university degree. In return, the student-athlete will represent the university in their respective sport and maintain a good level of academic performance.
Former tennis scholarship recipients include the likes of John Isner (University of Georgia), Bob & Mike Bryan (Stanford University), Lisa Raymond (University of Florida), James Blake (Harvard University), and Sondev Devvarman (University of Virginia)
