Furman Men’s Tennis head coach J.J. Whitlinger announced the team’s schedule for the 2023 season. The upcoming season’s schedule features 22 matches, out of which 10 are to be played at Mickel Tennis Center – Furman’s home court. The 2023 slate also includes seven matches versus SoCon rivals.

“This season, we have put together a strong schedule. Our non-conference matches are extremely challenging and that’s why you play the game,” remarked Whitlinger. “We want to give our guys the opportunity to compete at the highest level and test themselves continuously through the season. Sasha and I are looking forward to seeing how our team reacts through the highs and lows of the upcoming season.”

Starting on January 14–15, Furman will play four straight road games against Clemson and Georgia Tech. The Paladins begin their road trip at Tulane on Jan. 20 and end it in South Alabama two days later. The home portion of Furman’s schedule gets underway on Jan. 28 as the Dins host Belmont Abbey.
