With students hoping to return to campus in the fall, this year’s Club Tennis Executive Team is getting excited for a new season and to meet all of our new and incoming players.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, sports around the country, both collegiate and professional, have been greatly affected. During the spring 2020 semester, our travel team was preparing for the Spring Invitational in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, the night before our scheduled departure, Butler announced it’s closure for the remainder of the semester. Unfortunately, due to the spread of the pandemic, our team was not able to attend the tournament, which was later cancelled. This was a huge bummer for all of our players attending, as they were very much looking forward to the chance to play in Vegas and compete for a top spot in the tournament.

Despite the unforeseen circumstances regarding the pandemic, Butler Club Tennis had an outstanding year last year and went out swinging. We are looking forward to our upcoming season and all of the practices, tournaments, and memories it has in store for each of us. Each and every one of our players has a strong passion for this sport and we cannot wait to have everyone back on campus playing together. There is always a lively yet competitive atmosphere in the tennis bubble that I guarantee all our players miss.

There are high hopes for the upcoming year and we are excited to see everyone’s faces on campus! We hope that our players and their families are finding ways to stay safe and active during these trying times, and hopefully have the chance to pick up a racket again real soon.

And as always, GO DAWGS!!
