New Tennis On Campus leader in Iowa
Armando Espinosa of Ames is the new chair of USTA Iowa’s Tennis On Campus (TOC) Committee, which is the collegiate club tennis league operated by the USTA.
“The Tennis On Campus chair serves as a liaison between college club teams and the USTA,” he said. “More importantly, helping them to see what is available to them after college.”
Espinosa played tennis at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. He later coached at several colleges including Wichita State, Marquette University, University of Oregon, Arizona State University and Iowa State. He is currently the tennis director at the Ames Fitness Center.
“One of my goals is to have a tournament where all club teams in the state come together and compete against each other,” he said. “I think that will be a good opportunity to showcase Tennis On Campus around the state."
There are currently 370 colleges throughout the U.S. competing in Tennis On Campus. The co-ed leagues regular season is fall and spring along with four major tournaments and a national championship in Orlando, Florida.
