Northeastern Club Tennis is a co-ed, student-run program that was founded in 2005 by Ankur Shah and Ashley Dentler. The team consisted of about 20 members and has grown each year to its current size of about 60 members.
Tryouts are held at the beginning of each semester at the Carter Field Playground courts and Weymouth Club (Fall and Spring respectively). In order to tryout players must attend an information session held the week before. The time and location of these meetings will be posted on our website under News and Updates as well as Prospective Players.
The men's team practiced at Sportsmen's Tennis Club in Dorchester from 2005-2007 and has been practicing at the Weymouth Club from 2008-present. The women's team also practiced at Sportsmen's Tennis Club but has been practicing at Weymouth since the fall of 2010. Transportation from Northeastern to Weymouth is provided by the Club Tennis Team.
The men's and women's teams practice separately once a week and hold mixed practices twice a week. Each member is required to go to their respective practice as well as one mixed practice per week since matches and tournaments are coed. Every match consists of one men's singles, one women's singles, one men's doubles, one women's doubles and one mixed doubles. For more information about the format check out the official Tennis On Campus site.
The team attends a variety of tournaments throughout the year. To find out more about the tournaments we go to visit our News and Updates page. We make sure that all players interested in participating in these matches get an opportunity to do so. Almost all of the tournaments take place on weekends and transportation is be provided. With the opening of Carter Field Playground on campus, we are now hosting a couple of tournaments per semester.
There is one major tournament that Northeastern hosts at the Weymouth Club; Midnight Madness. Midnight Madness is a tournament that began in 2010 and focuses on raising money for a local charity. Teams from all over come to participate and help fundraise. Each year half the funds are sent to Boston Police Department's Volley Against Violence and The Jester and Pharley Phund. Both organizations are extremely close to our hearts, and we hosted the 9th annual Midnight Madness tournament in Spring 2019.
