Slamstox College Tennis Showcase at Michigan State

The Slamstox College Tennis Showcase is an official tournament for all tennis players interested in playing college tennis. During this event, college tennis coaches will travel to Michigan State University to scout and meet new players for their team at this event. With the USTA B18 and B16 National Hard Court Championships starting August 4th only 90 minutes away in Kalamazoo, this is the perfect chance to both showcase your skills to college coaches and sharpen your game for the tournament.  Are you ready for this unique opportunity? Sign up here!

During the tournament, boys and girls are allowed to compete, with the minimum age of participation being 13 years old. The showcase will take place from August 1st to 3rd and will include both singles and doubles matches. The showcase is an official UTR tournament, so all matches will count for your UTR. During the Slamstox Tennis Showcase, there is a possibility to connect with college coaches in person and get invited to have meetings with them.

Lastly, a very unique part of this opportunity is that August 1st is the first opportunity for college coaches to legally meet with rising high school juniors in person, off campus, per NCAA rules.  This means you will get a chance at a great first impression for coaches looking to add to their 2025 classes, an opportunity not available anywhere else!
