Did you know that…

  • If college tennis was a country, it would have the most players in the ATP top 300 in the world.
  • Every NCAA singles champion in the past 10 years has made it to the ATP top 500.
  • Each year the NCAA-singles winner (with U.S. citizenship) receives a Wildcard for the first subsequent US Open? Englishman Paul Jubb won it in 2019, even receiving a Wildcard to Wimbledon!
  • The University of Gerogia’s Tennis Complex seats over 5,000 people.
  • The average age of a pro tennis player reaching the top 100 is 28 (male) and 26 (female) – that is one of the reasons why playing college tennis between the age of 18 and 22 is the perfect way to continue improving after your junior career.

  • Slamstox will help set up a close collaboration between your junior coach in your country and your college coach to develop the ultimate program to improve your tennis skills while in the US and during your school holidays back home.
