Virginia Tech Men’s Tennis has the potential to become a strong contender in the ACC. Head coach Jim Thompson has a knack for developing talent in Blacksburg. Your gift to the Hokies would go to help Virginia Tech Men’s Tennis student-athletes on their path to that development by enhancing the Burrows-Burleson Tennis Center, the team’s equipment budget, as well as travel expenses.
"The ACC is one of the premier leagues for tennis in the country and it is crucial to be able to continue to gain support from donors in order to help our program compete at the highest level. We have had very good success over the years in the ACC but this is becoming more and more difficult as schools that we compete with continue to upgrade their facilities, budgets and create an environment that attracts the very best players."
- Jim Thompson, Head Coach Virginia Tech Men's Tennis
Donations during Triumph Together will be essential in assisting Virginia Tech Men's Tennis in several key areas:
- Updated team areas at the Burrows-Burleson Tennis Center
- Resources to properly outfit men’s tennis student-athletes with necessary shoes and rackets
- Funds for an upgraded team van that would allow them to travel more efficiently and comfortably
"Although I came to Tech as a transfer, each day I'm reminded of what 'This is home' is all about. In two seasons, I've experienced success both individually and with my team, and that isn't possible without the support from Hokie Nation. The coaches, teammates and support staff are what make Blacksburg special, but with continued support, we can continue to add to the fantastic resources we have now, like the Student-Athlete Performance Center, weight room and more!"
- Jordan Chrysostom, 2x NCAA Doubles qualifier
