Most college athletic scholarships are classified by the NCAA as “equivalency” scholarships and not “full ride” as is the case with football and basketball, sometimes called “head count” sports.
Women’s tennis is classified as a “head Count” sport which means that the tennis scholarships given to women are “full-ride scholarships”. Men’s tennis is a little different in that it is classed as an equivalency sport which means that the coach can share the scholarship quota between a larger number of players.
NCAA DI 8 scholarships per college
NCAA DII 6 scholarships per college
NCAA DI 4.5 scholarships per college
NCAA DII 4.5 scholarships per college
NAIA colleges offer 5 tennis scholarships for men and 5 for women.
NJCAA colleges offer 8 scholarships for men and 8 for women.
One of the first things you have to do if you want a tennis scholarship is register and be certified by the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse. you need to go to the NCAA Academic Eligibility section of this website to see what initial-eligibility standards you need to have.
Consider attending a tennis camp. College tennis camps teach advanced skills such as volleys, strokes, drills and multi-game skills. most also offer video analysis of skills and match play as well. As a bonus you get seen by the coach.
