I have one question about prize money. I'm playing tennis on a really good level in Europe (Germany and Czech Republic). I am going to play some tournaments for adults this year. I've read some facts about college tennis on this forum and the NCAA tennis page
. In German I've read check for college tennis
. I know I have to improve my English in the future, if I want to play for a college team. (But I think the TOEFL or SAT won't be the main problem)
My question is: Do you have to be a "100% amateur" before going to college? I want to apply for a scholarship in 1.5 years. I think a scholarship has more value than the prize money I can earn with my tennis. Even so some clubs asked me to play for money for their team. But would it be okay to be a part-time couch? Thank you very much for your help.
