Pitt Club Tennis Goes to Nationals 2016!

Although their campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to Pitt Club Tennis you may always do so here.


About Our Team:

Pitt Club Tennis was founded in 2006, and this September was the 10th anniversary of our organization. Our 30 member co-ed team enjoys practicing several days a week all year round at Club for Life in Monroeville. In both the Fall and Spring semesters, our team competes in USTA Tennis on Campus tournaments in the Middle States section.

Our team at practice!

About Nationals:

2016 Nationals will be held Thursday, April 14- Saturday, April 16 in Cary, North Carolina. Sixty-four teams from across the country will travel to compete. Last year, Pitt placed fourteenth in the country! On day one of the tournament last year, we went undefeated in our pool that included Pepperdine, Colorado State and Clemson. This allowed us to compete in the Gold bracket against teams like Stanford, Miami and UNC. As we approach Nationals for the second time, we would like to bring both veterans and rookies to compete and support our team.  Many of the teams last year were able to bring a well-rounded squad to represent their school, and we would love to do the same!

The Funds:

We have come together as a team this year to fundraise. We kicked off the year with our first annual Pitt Club Tennis Fundraising Tournament, which gave Pitt students an opportunity to play in a competitive setting in Schenley Park. We also reached out to the neighboring communities to teach tennis clinics to kids in the Pittsburgh area. These and a few other small fundraisers have brought in enough money to finance most of our regular season expenses. We are now looking to Nationals.

Here's Where the EngagePitt™ Funds Will Go:

  • $250:  Registration
  • $2400: Hotel rooms for the team
  • $850:   Transportation, uniforms
  • $3500:  TOTAL

Any funds we raise in excess of our goal will go towards general season costs such as court time, tennis balls, etc.

Final Thoughts:

Our team is excited to represent the University of Pittsburgh this year in the USTA Tennis on Campus National championships. Any amount of help to reach this goal is so appreciated. Together we can show 'em what Pitt is made of! Hail to Pitt!
