2010-11 Women's Tennis Schedule
PHILADELPHIA - In addition to the traditional Cissie Leary Tournament on the Penn campus, the University of Pennsylvania women's tennis team will host 12 home matches at Levy Pavilion and on the Lott Courts in 2010-11.
The Quakers will open the fall season on Sept. 10 with a trip to Williamsburg, Va., for the William & Mary Invitational. Two weeks later, the Red and Blue will host the annual Cissie Leary Invitational from Sept. 24-26. Penn has three other fall tournaments - the Columbia Invitational (Sept. 17-19), Saint Joseph's Fall Invitational (Oct. 1-3) and the National Tennis Center Invitational (Oct. 9-12) - before heading to Hanover, N.H., for the ITA Regionals (Oct. 22-26).
On Jan. 19, the Quakers open the spring season against West Philadelphia neighbor Drexel for the second straight year. Last season, Penn earned its first victory under head coach Sanela Kunovac with a 6-1 win over the Dragons.
Later that week, the Red and Blue make another trip to the state of Virginia for the VCU Invitational in Richmond. The tournament will mark the last time the Quakers leave Philadelphia for nearly six weeks. The next six matches will be played on their home courts. During that stretch, they will welcome non-conference opponents Saint Joseph's, George Washington, Temple, Richmond, Binghamton and Stony Brook to Levy Pavilion.
The 2011 spring trip will take Penn to Jacksonville, Fla., and the campus of the University of North Florida. Between March 8-11, the Quakers will take on Stetson, North Florida and James Madison before returning to the City of Brotherly Love.
Following a March 18 match with Georgetown, the Quakers get into conference play. The first three Ivy League games are all at home against Princeton (March 26), Yale (April 1) and Brown (April 2). The next three will all be on the road at Harvard (April 8), Dartmouth (April 9) and Cornell (April 15). The 2011 regular season then comes to a close on April 17 against Columbia at the Lott Courts.
All match dates and times are subject to change.
