Bruin tennis: ‘Tight-knit and hard-working’

Our program promotes a strong team culture emphasizing competitiveness and a commitment to one another. We are extremely committed to excelling in everything we do, whether it be in academics or on the court. You won’t find another team in the country that is as tight-knit and hard working as ours.

Among region’s top-ranked programs

In four years we have turned around the program from being at the bottom of the conference to back-to-back top-two finishes in the Northwest Conference. We’ve also earned recognition by being ranked among the top 10 in the regional rankings.

Come to our beautiful Newberg, Ore., campus. I’d love to meet you in person and introduce you to other team members. You are also invited to watch us practice. I’m confident you will like what you see.

Let's talk
