Tennis Club Information
The Penn State Tennis Club is one of the largest clubs in the Penn State Club Sports program, the largest Club Sports program in the country. Over 200 students participate in the Tennis Club each year. Court hours are held at the Sarni Tennis Facility and the Penn State Tennis Center. Because there are both outdoor and indoor facilities on Penn State's campus, members are able to play throughout the Fall and Spring semesters, even during the cold, wintry months. All members have the opportunity to try out for the Travel Team, a co-ed team that travels to various tournaments throughout the year. The Travel Team has qualified for the National Campus Championships the past few years, and placed 7th in 2010, 12th in 2011, and 11th in 2012.
