Cedar Falls, Iowa – UNI Women’s Tennis will participate in the MVC Individual Tournament hosted by the University of Valparaiso, in Valparaiso, Indiana, this weekend.
The Panthers will face everyone at the Missouri Valley Conference, including Illinois State, Stony Brook, Drake, Valparaiso, Bradley and Missouri State. The tournament features seven individual competitive singles flights and three doubles action flights. Doubles matches will be played in an 8 match format. For singles, players will play a best of 3 sets, if it’s 1-1 in sets, they will play a full third set.
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, there was no fall tennis season in 2020-2021, making the last individual MVC tournament in 2019-2020, in which seniors Olivia fain and junior Thassa Moreira won flight # 3 in doubles.
The tournament starts Friday October 8 at 9:30 am with doubles. The matches will be played at the Valparaiso Tennis Complex. If weather conditions require moving indoors over the weekend, Northwest Indiana Courts will serve as an alternate site.
