Bailey-Duvall became the 11th head coach in Middle Tennessee women's tennis history following her six year tenure at Butler. During her time as the leader of the Bulldogs, Bailey-Duvall's team won a Big East Tournament match in four of her five seasons. Additionally, the tennis program earned NCAA Public Recognition Awards every year of Bailey-Duvall's time as head coach, which honors teams for ranking in the top 10% of their sport based on their multiyear Academic Progress Rates.
As a player, Bailey-Duvall was a three-time first team All-Conference tennis honoree for Butler. She boasted a 74-46 all-time singles record and led the Bulldogs to three appearances in the Horizon League tournament final before graduating in 2006 with a degree in biology.
After her graduation, Bailey-Duvall was hired as a women's tennis assistant coach for two seasons at her alma mater. Butler advanced to the Horizon League championship match in both seasons she was on staff. Following her first tenure at Butler, Bailey-Duvall played tennis professionally at the Goldfine-Smatt International Tennis Academy in Hallandale Beach, Fla, before returning as the Head Coach at Butler in 2012.

All Skills Program
The All Skills program is designed for tennis players of any skill level and background and includes concentrated work to develop the proper fundamentals and a mix of drilling and match play.
10 and Under Tennis
10&Under Tennis is an exciting way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts.
Monday-Thursday: Drop off is at 8:45am for all campers at the tennis courts. Campers should come dressed to play as we will head straight to the courts after check-in.
Monday-Thursday: Daily check out is at 12:30am for Half Day Campers and at 4:00pm for Full Day Campers at the the tennis courts.
Campers will play on the 5 outdoor tennis courts.
Lunch will be provided to all Full Day campers only. We will break for lunch after the morning session.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring.
