Tennis Scholarships

As most tennis players know and realise, getting to the highest level is expensive. It takes a lot of money to travel, enter the necessary tournaments and getting coached by the best. Without a sponsor this is extremely difficult.

Also, it leaves players in a situation where they must devote every ounce of focus and energy to tennis. What then happens after your tennis career?

College tennis in the United States gives tennis players an opportunity to continue their development whilst getting an education. Tennis scholarships can fully fund the opportunity of playing full-time tennis, compete against universities across the USA and of course get a university degree.

Ongoing Pastoral Care

To date, we've sent over 35,000 young men and women to the US. Securing over £300 million in scholarship awards and finding a place for every single qualifying applicant.

Every year, thousands of student-athletes and their families come face-to-face with the difficult challenge of securing a scholarship to an American university. What they often discover is that navigating university options is stressful enough, and adding sports into the mix brings it to a whole new level.

Even for those who do a little recruiting homework, they are often left with more questions, very few simple answers and an uneasy feeling they are somehow falling behind.

At FirstPoint, we understand what you’re going through. Many of us have experienced first-hand what the scholarship recruiting experience is like—as players and as coaches. And that experience, combined with our advanced online technology, expansive college coach network and proven recruiting methods, helps thousands of student-athletes and their families take control of their recruiting experience.

Whether you are a first-year high school student or a national ranked athlete, FirstPoint helps take the stress of uncertainty out of your scholarship journey by putting a plan in place to help you find your best university options in the USA.

What our Student-Athletes say about us

Jude Swailes
"really helpful and cared"

I asked a few people on who to contact to help me with getting through to a scholar in USA, everyone mentioned First point USA! They were really helpful and cared from the start as I had a zoom meeting, not just caring but were really honest and thorough with what they do. I mainly spoke to Craig at first point... top bloke! He helped me with specific requests on where I wanted to go in America and within a matter of weeks I was where I wanted to be. Would recommend First Point USA to anyone trying to get a scholarship in America.

"I couldn't be happier"

I couldn't be happier with my experience working with Firstpoint USA. Having just graduated from university in South Carolina, I am so grateful for the life changing experience and opportunities that have been available to me as an NCAA DI student athlete. None of which would have been possible without the expertise and knowledge of the staff at Firstpoint USA. Would highly recommend FPUSA to anyone thinking about going to university in the USA

Frequently Asked Questions

The number of tennis scholarships available varies by school and competition level. Depending on how important a scholarship is to you, finding the school with the most scholarships can be critical.

Not all colleges that are eligible to offer scholarships will choose to do so. For example, Ivy League schools choose not to offer athletic scholarships. Women’s tennis is a head count sport only in NCAA D1, which means that all NCAA D1 scholarships are full scholarships.

  • NCAA Division I has 320 colleges offering 8 Scholarships per team.
  • NCAA Division II has 212 colleges offering 6 Scholarships per team.
  • NCAA Division III has 361 colleges with athletic scholarships per team.
  • NAIA has 110 colleges offering 5 Scholarships per team.
  • Junior College has 141 colleges offering 9 Scholarships per team.

Many families ask how much the average women's college soccer scholarship is. Unfortunately, that's pretty difficult to pinpoint. Women's soccer is an equivalency sport, meaning that coaches are not required to give out full scholarships to their athletes and can instead break them up however they want. So, for a D1 team with 28 roster spots, a coach could give out 14 full-ride scholarships, or 28 scholarships that cover half the tuition.

Additionally, the cost of tuition at each college and university is going to vary. An in-state student at a public university could pay close to $10,000 a year, while an out-of-state student at a private university could pay $60,000 a year. Trying to find an average women's college scholarship amount doesn't account for those differences in tuition. Furthermore, not all athletes receive scholarships all four years of their college women's soccer career. Instead of trying to determine what the average scholarship amount is, we recommend families first figure out how much they are willing to pay for four years of college. Then, while going through the recruiting process, student-athletes can compare offers based on their family's expected contribution-the amount they will pay out of pocket after factoring in all scholarship dollars.
