North Central Tennis Fall Recap:
The women’s team went 12-0 this fall including capturing their 4th straight CCIW Regular Season Title. The Cardinals have won 43 straight CCIW matches and will be the #1 seed at the spring Conference Tournament.
Abby Penados, Natalie Bassett, and Kensington Payne were selected as All-Conference performers- while Abby won CCIW Player of the Year and Coach Ryan Jump won his 4th straight Coach of the Year award. In the rankings, Abby Penados is ranked 26th in the nation in singles and Abby and Natalie Bassett are ranked 25th in the nation for doubles.
The men’s team had a shorter fall season, playing in 2 invites with a veteran roster. Of the men’s team that was ranked as high as 37th in the nation last year, over 3/4ths of the players returned for this season.
NCAA National Singles Qualifier from May, Ramon Vilarroig, leads the Cardinals on a quest for their 2nd CCIW Championship in the last 4 seasons. Last season, returners Ramon Vilarroig and Matt Sengphommachanh were All-Conference performers.
Both teams have a handful of matches at the Naperville Tennis Club this winter!

Thank you to all who supported the Serving Up Hope fundraiser held Saturday, April 23, at Naperville Tennis Club. The event brought in more than $20,000 (double the goal!), which will support tennis and education in Uganda. See how your donation helps children and communities whose lives are changed through tennis and education. "The tennis and pickleball community in and around Naperville is amazing," says Vania King, founder of Serving Up Hope and two-time Doubles Grand Slam Champion. "The energy on and off the court was really special. I was overwhelmed by the response to our mission and the money raised. The support will go a long way toward serving the needs of the kids in Uganda and giving them real courts to play on. I had so much fun and hope we can make this an annual event!"
