Welcome to GCU Club Tennis

GCU Club Tennis is built on the love of the sport, community and healthy competition while building student leaders in a fun atmosphere.  We are a social tennis club for GCU students who are looking to continue their passion for tennis while working toward their academic goals.

The GCU Club Tennis team participates in many different events each year.  GCU Club Tennis competes in organized college club events and local United States Tennis Association (USTA) leagues, as well as home competitions with other university club teams, and exhibition matches with community colleges across the Phoenix area. After receiving a featured a berth in the Gold Finals at the Lumberjack Axe Open in Flagstaff, as well as a sixth-place finish at the USTA Southwest Section Championships for the second straight year in 2019-20, the Lopes are eager to get back to competing after an abbreviated 2020-21 season.

Our club practices twice a week and is one of a select few club tennis programs in the country that has a designated head coach prepared and equipped to train the team and accompany it to competitions.
