Growing college tennis
what is the utca?
UTCA executive committee of college coaches from all divisions helps guide and drive innovation and growth in the sport. All supportive Universal Tennis college program subscribers will be members, without any incremental costs. Members will continue to benefit from Universal Tennis technology, investment, events, and support. UTCA will offer collaborative meetings throughout the year among the executive committee and one annual in-person meeting.

Why coaches love Universal Tennis
Universal Tennis is passionate about continuous growth for college tennis but also provides a great support system for coaches, recruits, and students to achieve their goals.
College tennis is special and being a part of moving the needle forward with UTCA for future generations is a no-brainer.
I’m excited to be a part of the UCTA and appreciate their desire to promote college tennis on a bigger stage. The leadership at Universal Tennis loves our sport and wants to tell our story well.
Universal Tennis has offered solutions to help with my coaching by giving me more resources to help recruit and find the right players that fit into my team.
