How Hard Is It To Get A Tennis Scholarship?
Just how hard is it to get a tennis scholarship? The simple answer, very.
First of all, getting a scholarship in any sport is tough. In 2015/16 in ALL sports, a little over 7% of high school athletes (about 1 in 14) went on to play a varsity sport in college. About 2% of high school athletes (1 in 50) went on to play at the NCAA Division I level.
The numbers for tennis are even lower than that. Of the 340,116 young men and women who played tennis in high school about 1% of them are playing at an NCAA Division I School.
What might stand out to parents even more than that statistic is the fact that if your child is lucky enough to get one of those scholarships, it will hardly make a dent in helping pay for you child’s college education.
