Although their campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to support Pitt Club Tennis, you may always do so here.
About Our Team:
Pitt Club Tennis was founded in 2006, marking this September as the 12th anniversary of our organization. Our 30 member co-ed team enjoys practicing several days a week all year round at The Club Sport & Health Tennis Club in Monroeville. In both the fall and spring semesters our team competes in USTA Tennis on Campus tournaments all over the East coast (and primarily in the Middle States Section).
In the past year, our team has competed at some of Tennis on Campus’ biggest tournaments, including Battle of the Sections (Bethany Beach, DE) and Fall Invitational (Hilton Head Island, SC). Additionally, we went to Michigan State B1G Showdown, and competed at our own Pitt Panther Open, hosting the top teams in the region. Most importantly. we qualified for the Tennis on Campus Spring Invitational!
About Spring Invitational:
This year, the 2018 Tennis on Campus Spring Invitational is being played in Surprise, Arizona from March 23-25th. Forty-eight teams from across the country will travel to compete at the Surprise Tennis and Racquet Complex. At this tournament, we get the opportunity to play against many teams from around the country, including Stanford University, Northwestern University, Purdue University, University of Arizona, University of Oregon, University of Southern California, and many more!
As anyone on the 2017 nationals team will attest, attending the TOC championships or any travel tournament is a unique and unbelievable experience. We were able to meet new people, play competitive tennis, and most importantly, have loads of fun! We would love nothing more than to do it again.
The Funds (Our Efforts):
Although we truly need as much support as possible to be able to travel to Surprise, we have done our fair share of fundraising as team throughout the academic year. We had the opportunity to hold our second annual Pitt Panther Open that brought teams such as Penn State, Notre Dame, Rowan, St. Joseph, and Villanova!
We have also fund-raised by teaming with local restaurants in Pittsburgh, as well as hosting events such as Dodgeball tournaments and Basketball tournaments. These fundraisers (in addition to team dues) have brought in enough money to finance most of our regular season expenses. We are now looking to fundraise for our largest expense to date, Spring Invitational, in Surprise, Az.
Here's where the EngagePitt™ funds will go:
- $250: Registration
- $1400: Hotel Rooms for the team
- $2950: Transportation (including flights and rental cars)
- $400: Uniforms
- $5000: TOTAL
Any funds we raise in excess of our goal will go towards general season costs such as court time, tennis balls, etc.
Our team is excited to represent the University of Pittsburgh this year in the Tennis on Campus Spring Invitational. Any amount of help to reach this goal is very much appreciated. Together we can show everyone what Pitt is made of! Hail to Pitt!
