BERKELEY, Calif. — This weekend, the women’s squad will head down the I-80 to compete in their first fall team tournament, the Cal Nike Fall Invitational, starting on Friday (Sept. 29) and concluding on Sunday (Oct. 1) at both the Hellman Tennis Complex and Channing Tennis Courts in Berkeley, Calif.

Competing at this year’s field, aside from UC Davis, will include individuals from BYU, California, Cal Poly, Fresno State, Nevada, Pacific, Sacramento State, Saint Mary’s, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and UCLA.

This weekend’s Invitational will start on Friday with one round of doubles, then two rounds of singles. Saturday will consist of two rounds of doubles followed by one round of singles, and then the tournament will conclude on Sunday with the finals in the doubles, as well as the semis and finals in singles. Similar to previous years, there will be three different flights: Blue, Gold, and White, with Blue being the top flight and White being the bottom flight. The winner of the Blue singles and doubles main draws are deemed as the champions of this invitational. 

In last year’s tournament, UC Davis women’s tennis won three championships during the final day of action, two of them being singles victories by sophomore Kristina Breisacher, who defeated Saint Mary’s No. 1-seeded opponent Vanessa Nommenson in the White Flight championship match.

This season’s Invitational will introduce Shirley Hall and Jessica Walker, UC Davis’ incoming freshman class, as they make their debut in Division I athletics. 

Women’s tennis will continue their fall season on Oct. 6 in Moraga, Calif. for the Saint Mary’s Invitational. Starting on Oct. 19 and finishing up on Oct. 23, the team’s fall schedule will conclude at Stanford, the host of the ITA Northwest Regional Championships.
