Dear Supporters of Thunderbird Tennis

How time flies! Can you believe we are starting our 3rd season of competition in the NWAC? Last year we proudly finished second in the NWAC and EVERY graduating sophomore was recruited to play on at a 4-year program.
Assistant Coach Makoa Rosa and I are fully committed to continuing to provide an exceptional experience for TBird student-athletes. Our focus remains maintaining a balance between academics, athletics and community stewardship. But we need your help.
Our teams rely on private donations to aid in the success of our student-athletes. Your generous contributions help fund things like travel costs, uniforms and equipment. T-Birds measure victories not only in championships but also in our high retention, graduation and successful transfer rates.
We had several highlights this past year including traveling to California to play (and beat) some of the top JC teams in the nation. Additionally, we had the opportunity to partner with the Boeing Employee Tennis Center in hosting a fantastic 2-day tennis camp for tennis athletes with special needs.
