Women's Tennis

Recently the University of Dubuque women’s tennis squad has won more dual meets than previous years combined. It's a perfect time to become part of a program establishing a competitive and fun atmosphere for players of all levels. The team members must have a passion for tennis and want to grow and develope better skills while playing approximately 20 matches per year as they travel around the Midwest. Trips have included Florida and Washington, D.C. over spring break. If you're looking for a place to learn and grow your skills both on and off the court, then University of Dubuque is what you're looking for. 

Six recently completed outdoor courts resurfaced in 2017 and 2018 and four indoor multi-purpose courts allow the Spartans to practice and compete in any weather conditions.
