Women's Tennis Set To Host Kitty Harrison Invitational

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – The reigning National Champion North Carolina women’s tennis program will kick off its 2023 fall season on Friday when it hosts the Kitty Harrison Invitational Friday through Sunday at the Chewning Tennis Center.

This year’s field will represent 12 outstanding institutions, including four Atlantic Coast Conference squads – Auburn, Charlotte, Clemson, Duke, Florida, NC State, North Carolina, Old Dominion, Penn State, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin.

Each day of the event will begin with doubles on Friday morning at 9 a.m., with singles to follow.


Friday – 1 doubles match, 2 singles matches

Saturday – 1 doubles matches, 1 singles match

Sunday – 1 doubles match, 1 singles match

The tournament is held in honor of Kitty Harrison, head coach of the North Carolina women’s tennis team from 1976 to 1998. Eight of Harrison’s 22 teams were ranked among the top 25 nationally and, under her direction, Carolina won four ACC Championships in a row from 1977 to 1980 and finished as the league runner-up four other times. 

Harrison retired after the 1997-98 season as the winningest tennis coach in ACC history in terms of dual-match victories with a 22-year record of 351-224. She was inducted into the North Carolina Tennis Hall of Fame in 2004.

Admission is free all weekend.
