#1 in Tennis
More tennis scholarships are awarded to international athletes than domestic athletes. It is essential that a player actively pursues a coach, or they may never be noticed. Don’t put the fate of tennis scholarships to chance; show coaches you are passionate about attending their school by following these steps.
Getting College Coaches at Your Matches
The higher level tournaments you play, the more likely a coach will make the trip out to see you. Having a video is a must to convince coaches to come see you in person. Also, certain coaches will frequent the same tournaments each year, and you will need to figure out which tournaments those are and qualify to play in them. Even before you attend these tournaments, make sure coaches know who you are by implementing these ideas.
How the Tennis Recruiting Process Works
Getting recruited in tennis relies heavily on the tournaments you play and the rankings that you earn. However, with so many different ranking systems both internationally and domestically, you need more than just a good ranking for a coach to want to recruit you.
How Good are College Tennis Players?
Players at the top colleges are expected to have international and national experience, but you don’t have to in order to play college tennis. There are thousands of opportunities; take the time to explore different schools and study their rosters.
