Scarpa Tennis Endowment

Coach Paul Scarpa led Furman men’s tennis to a position of national dominance before retiring in the summer of 2011 as the winningest coach in NCAA Division I history. He is now serving as a special assistant to President Rod Smolla and an “ambassador at large” for the university.

During his 45 years at Furman, he won 17 regular-season Southern Conference titles and 14 league tournament championships. He is a member of the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame, U.S. Tennis Association Southern Hall of Fame, and the Furman Athletic Hall of Fame.

In recognition of his accomplishments and his dedication to Furman, the university has established the Paul Scarpa Tennis Coach Endowed Fund. Earnings from this endowment will benefit the men’s program by funding operating costs, travel, recruiting, scholarships and salaries.
