A winning record is every coach’s goal, but some have figured out the formula better than others. Matt Turk, CSUN Athletics, dove into the dual match records to find the top women’s tennis coaches of each division.

First, we will look at the top Division I Women coaches. Coaches were ranked by their overall win percentage. To be included, coaches had to have at least 10 years of head coaching experience at an NCAA program. The win percentage includes all victories as a head coach at a four-year institution.

Below are the top 12 Division I Women coaches. See everyone who made the Top 50 list.

The ITA is excited to provide all-time coaching records. If you feel there is an omission or correction that needs to be made please contact Caroline Huey.
