FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State women’s tennis team will open season play this weekend, hosting the third annual CSU Invitational at the University Tennis Complex Friday through Sunday, Sept. 21-23.
Admission and parking are free.
Northern Colorado, CSU-Pueblo, Colorado Mesa University and Tarleton State will join the Rams for the three-day tournament.
The University Tennis Complex is located south of the main Colorado State campus, on Research Blvd. north of Drake, in Fort Collins.
“It’s good to have a Colorado tournament,” said head coach Jon Messick. “I expect strong competition from all four teams.”
One round of singles will be played on Friday, followed by one round of doubles. Saturday’s competition begins at 9 a.m. and will consist of one round of singles followed by two rounds of doubles. The tournament concludes Sunday, beginning at 9 a.m., with one round of singles.
The tournament will represent the first action of the season for all but Tarleton State, and will mark the Rams’ first competition in history against the school.
“It’s been awhile since we played Colorado Mesa and CSU-Pueblo,” said Messick. “I expect to see great competition there. This tournament will be a good test for our team.”
Messick feels confident his returning players have progressed from last year. The Rams also look forward to welcoming five freshman to the roster, and the influx of talent they bring to the roster.
For the five freshman, this tournament will measure how far the freshmen have come in the early season.
The Rams look to gain momentum in the first of three fall tournaments to ultimately prepare for the ITA Mountain Regionals October.
