Why BYU Women's Tennis

FACILITIES 

The Cougars enjoy some of the finest tennis facilities in the country. A one million dollar renovation of the outdoor courts in 1995 gave BYU 14 fully lighted courts with full backdrops. The courts are set in banks of two or four for easy viewing. 

The four indoor courts have one of the best lighting systems in the country and cushioned chair-back seats for comfortable viewing. The facility has been the training grounds for over 30 All-Americans over the years. The indoor facility plays host to BYU home matches during the winter months and during inclement weather. 

COACHING STAFF

Lauren Jones-Spencer enters her third year as head coach for BYU women's tennis. Spencer played for BYU from 2004-07 and accumulated an 85-51 singles record and 81-35 doubles record. Spencer was ranked No. 95 in the nation in singles as a junior and No. 45 in preseason polls in doubles.
