Weaver Announces 2022-23 Women’s Tennis Schedule – Texas A&M Athletics
BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M Women’s Tennis and Head Coach Marc Weaver announced the Aggies’ 2022-23 schedule on Wednesday, highlighted by 14 doubles matches and a fall tournament at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center.
“We are excited to release our schedule for the 2022-23 season,” Weaver said. “As always, we were aiming to face a very tough roster of opponents. Luckily, we are set to host the ITA launch weekend again in hopes of qualifying for the Nationals in room in Seattle. We have a good trip to Orlando to face strong Big Ten teams which will give us excellent preparation heading into the SEC regular season. Our team also has the added benefit of playing on the national campus of the USTA in February, and we hope to use that experience on the road as this venue hosts the NCAA Tag Team Championships in May.”
A&M opens the 2022-23 schedule with the fall tournament portion of its schedule, starting on the road in Raleigh, North Carolina for the NC State Invitational Sept. 22-25. A separate group of Aggies will compete in the ITA Texas Regional Championships at TCU September 22-26. Qualifying roster members will compete at the ITA All-American Championships Oct. 1-9 in Cary, North Carolina.
Maroon & White will host its only fall tournament at the Mitchell Tennis Center Oct. 21-23, as the Aggies host competitors for the Texas A&M Fall Invitational. Fall play continues with the Baylor Invitational October 28-30 and the Rice Invitational November 3-5. The crown jewel of the fall semester runs from November 2-6, as A&M will compete at the ITA Fall Nationals in San Diego, CA.
The Aggies, the defending Southeastern Conference regular season and tournament champions, kick off the program’s 44th doubleheader season with a doubleheader at Mitchell Tennis Center on Jan. 17, as A&M hosts Houston and Prairie View A&M. The team hosts another twin bill later in the week of Jan. 20, with Tulane and Sam Houston State making the trip to the Brazos Valley.
Texas A&M hosts the Bryan-College Station Regional in the 15th annual ITA kickoff weekend Jan. 27-28, as the Aggies host Florida Atlantic in the first round. A&M will face either Florida or Arizona on the second day of action. The brown and whites participate in a road tilt with Rice on February 4 before the start of the ITA Women’s National Team Indoor Championships. The winner of each regional during the ITA Kickoff Weekend will receive an invitation to the Team Indoor event at the Nordstrom Tennis Center on the University of Washington campus (February 10-13).
After National Indoors, A&M returns to Aggieland for a one-time test against Florida Atlantic on February 19. The Aggies will next challenge a pair of Big Ten foes at the USTA National Campus Collegiate Complex, facing Ohio State on Feb. 26 before a contest against Northwestern on Feb. 27.
The Aggies begin their SEC title defense March 3 at the site of their 2022 SEC Tournament Title, as the team takes on Florida on the road. A&M will then travel to challenge South Carolina on March 5 before returning to the Brazos Valley for a three-game home game against Arkansas (March 10), Missouri (March 12) and LSU (March 17) . The team hits the road again on March 24 and 26 to face Alabama and Auburn respectively. After that, the Maroon & White host four straight home games against Tennessee (March 31), Georgia (April 2), Ole Miss (April 7), and Mississippi State (April 9). A&M wraps up the regular season with road meets against Kentucky (April 14) and Vanderbilt (April 16).

A&M is returning five of six starters from a 2022 roster that posted the best record in program history at 33-2 and secured the first double-conference championship in program history. Aggies feature returning ITA All-Americans Carson Branstin and Goldsmith Jayci, in addition to the third class of signings in the country according to the Tennis Recruiting Network.
