SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The UC Santa Barbara women's tennis team was awarded the "Community Service Award" by the Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons last week.
The Gauchos were honored because of their efforts in the local community. They have worked extensively with the "Match Point" program to promote tennis to children from numerous local elementary schools throughout the Santa Barbara and Goleta area. The program is provided by the Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons Schools Program.
In addition to its work with "Match Point," UCSB donated its time to work with Special Olympics in Santa Barbara County.
The Gauchos return to the court on Saturday, Feb. 25 when they host Pacific in a match beginning at 11:00 a.m. The Big West Conference contest against the Tigers will be played at the Robertson Gymnasium Courts on campus.
