2020 Women's History Month: NCAA Coaches

March 16, 2020

Tennis has long been at the forefront of women’s sports, particularly in the United States, thanks to trailblazing pioneers like Billie Jean King. Since 1973, the US Open has paid equal prize money to women and men. Today, 12 of the 15 highest-paid female athletes are tennis players (including four Americans), according to Forbes.        


Women are making their mark in the coaching ranks, too, particularly in college tennis, where nearly half of the women’s programs in the Tennis Channel/USTA Top 25 are led by female head coaches, as of the start of Women’s History Month this March.


As we celebrate women in sports throughout the month, spotlights some of these female leaders who are making history of their own as the latest generation of sporting trendsetters, serving to inspire more females to enter the coaching corps at the NCAA level and beyond.
