Houston Tennis Inks Charlotte Phillips to National Letter of Intent

Charlotte Phillips signs her National Letter of Intent with Houston

May 5, 2011

HOUSTON - University of Houston tennis head coach John Severance announced the signing of British standout Charlotte Phillips to a National Letter of the Intent Thursday. Phillips becomes the second student-athlete to sign with the Cougars for the 2011-12 season.

"Charlotte is another top British prospect who had several offers from major schools and we expect her to play high in the lineup for us," said Severance. "She has a ton of potential and I'm expecting a lot from her. Charlotte is also a lefty and will replace departing senior Joanna Kacprzyk, who was a left-hander and was great for our program."

"I chose to sign with the University of Houston because not only is it a great University with a strong academic record, but it also stood out with its excellent tennis program, top class facilities, in-depth athlete support and the enthusiastic coaching staff," said Phillips. "I'm really looking forward to being part of it and to start training with the rest of the players."

Phillips, a native of Nottinghamshire, U.K., reached as high as No. 5 in the U18 rankings and earned a national senior ranking of No. 37.

Phillips claimed county championships in U12, U14 and U16 in singles and doubles play, while competing in the British Nationals for five-straight years. Phillips also took part in ETA and ITF European events in England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Malta, Turkey and Spain.

"The team really looks like it's going places and it checked all my boxes I was looking for," continued Phillips. "The idea of going to live, train and study at such an impressive University as Houston really excites me."

Phillips is the second prospect to sign with Houston this spring, joining Liselot Koenen from St. Charles, Ill.
