About Us

UW-Whitewater Tennis Club (UWWTC) is a coed student organization who's mission is to provide a fun atmosphere that promotes tennis, builds relationships, and inspires healthy competition. We offer free practice and instruction times, on campus league play, socials, community service hours, and leadership opportunities. Our traveling team has played at the USTA Tennis on Campus National Championships twice--in 2007 and 2008. We have traveled all over the Midwest, and played teams from all over the country including University of Texas, Rutgers, Eastern Michigan, and University of Minnesota. Our goal in the 2008-2009 academic year is to gain recognition on campus as a student organization rather than just a club sports program.


All rules, by-laws, responsibilities, and roles of club members are expressed in the club constitution.  It is the responsibility of all club members to review the constitution before entrance into the club.

In its first year (2006-2007) UWWTC was awarded the USTA Midwest Sportsmanship Award, and also the USTA/NIRSA Institutional Ace Award. In both 2007 and 2008, the team had the opportunity to compete against teams from Texas, North Carolina, and Puerto Rico at the USTA Tennis on Campus National Championships. In the 2007-2008 season, UWWTC finished with a record of 8-19 after the National Championships.

The Beginning

The UW-Whitewater Tennis Club (UWWTC) is a co-ed organization started in the fall 2006 by the combined efforts of former Club Sports Director Andy Milton, UWW Varsity Coach Frank Barnes, and students Jeff Boll and  Jim Kultgen. It joined the USTA Midwest Conference League and played its first tournament at Northwestern University in October of 2006. Since then, the club has expanded to a size of 80+ students ranging from Accounting to Art to Philosophy majors. The skill level of UWWTC members ranges from beginner to advanced and the club welcomes students of all levels in between. More UWWTC History
