Men's Tennis

The University of Dubuque men’s tennis program continues to improve and compete among the best in the country. In 2010, UD captured a singles USTA/ITA Midwest Regional Championship and the Spartans qualified an individual for the NCAA Division III National Singles Championships.

The squad will play around 20 matches per year as they travel around the Midwest as well as to Florida and Washington, D.C. over spring break. Six recently completed outdoor courts and four indoor multi-purpose courts allow the Spartans to play and practice in any weather conditions.
