Tennis Guidelines

Knowing exactly what college tennis coaches are looking for can make the tennis scholarship process a lot easier for women’s tennis recruits. NCSA’s tennis recruiting guidelines can help you decide the level of competition that you’re best suited for. The guidelines also give a tennis recruit an overview of how many tennis scholarships and college tennis programs are out there to choose from (in the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA).
