    About how good do you have to be to play there? Top 100 in the nation? 200? 300?

    we wouldnt know. send an email or call the coach to find out, taking initiative is always a great thing they'll give you the best answer.

    kwbaker@samford.edu. Kemper Baker is the coach. I graduated from there a few years ago. Did not play, but was pretty involved in the tennis team. Where are you from? You know you can go check out tennisrecruiting.net and see who they have recently signed to get an idea of whether you could cut it or not.

    Good luck

    I am a girl, but I know Kemper, the Samford coach. My coach and he are really good friends. I live about 5 minutes away from Samford. Kemper is a really nice guy.

    It seems on tennisrecruiting you have to be about top 150-250

    Stanford would only look at the top 50 in the nation. They can go to other countries to get really good players too so they wouldn't go very low in the rankings for US players.

    Post #9 was edited. It is pretty brief. Perhaps others should use the Quote button so there is no doubt what they are responding to.

    It looks like you only won one round. But besides that, I see you played Sam Weissler, I have also played him, he is pretty solid.

    Does this thread still have something to do with Samford University tennis, or is it the personal chat room of one player?

    That's because I know people that play and coach at Samford. So I am interested in a thread about it. If you want to find out about there tennis program why don't you play in one of the many junior tournaments that they hold.
