We Coach TENNIS — November 4th, 2012

Our guest tonight is the former Head Men’s Tennis Coach J.W. Isenhour. Mr. Isenhour is the former Head Coach of N.C. State Men’s Tennis Team from 1968-81. Isenhour also led the women team through three successful seasons, while bringing N.C. State Tennis from near obscurity into the limelight. Isenhour’s men’s teams compiled back-to-back ACC championships in 1978 and 1979 – the lone pair of championships in school history. N.C. State recently opened the J.W. Isenhour Tennis Center in his honor.

J.W. is a member of the North Carolina Tennis Hall of Fame. Currently he still coaches tennis at the Gaston Country Club in North Carolina.

In 2004 N.C. State completed The J.W. Isenhour Tennis Center. This center houses the men’s and women’s tennis programs of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. It is located across the street from Doak Field on the NC State campus.
