Get to Know GCU Club Tennis

The GCU club tennis team participates in many different events, from organized college club events and local United States Tennis Association (USTA) leagues to home competitions with other university club teams and exhibition matches with local junior colleges. This club is built on the love of the sport, community and healthy competition. Join us for some fun!

We are a social tennis club for GCU students who are looking to continue their passion for tennis, while working toward their academic goals. Our club practices twice a week and participates in at least one monthly competition. GCU club tennis is one of a select few in the country that has a designated head coach, who is prepared and equipped to train the team and accompany it to competitions.

As a club, we participate in a variety of different events. As new dates and events are finalized, we will update our schedule.
