Princeton Tennis Teams Set to Start Fall Campaigns
Both Princeton tennis teams will begin their fall seasons this weekend, with the men traveling to Penn State for a multi-team event and the women's team hosting a similar event, the Princeton Invitational, at the Lenz Tennis Center.
The men's event will feature Princeton taking on North Carolina State Friday, Penn State Saturday and Alabama Sunday. The event will not count as a regular dual match, but will feature seven singles players and four doubles teams battling it out with their Wolfpack, Nittany Lion and Crimson Tide counterparts.
The women's event will bring Penn, Buffalo and Virginia Tech to campus. The schedule is below:
4 p.m. Friday: Four doubles matches - Penn vs. Buffalo and Princeton vs. Virginia Tech
5 p.m. Friday: Four doubles matches - Princeton vs. Penn and Virginia Tech vs. Buffalo
10 a.m. Saturday: Eight singles matches - Penn vs. Buffalo and Princeton vs. Virginia Tech
Noon Saturday: Four doubles matches - Penn vs. Virginia Tech and Princeton vs. Buffalo
4 p.m. Saturday: Eight singles matches - Penn vs. Princeton and Virginia Tech vs. Buffalo
Sunday's matches will be decided upon Saturday by the coaches. All fans in attendance at Friday's matches will be able to enjoy free pizza and can sign up for a tennis clinic.
In case of rain, the matches will take place on the indoor courts on Jadwin Gym's E level.
