Rapp-ing up the Staff

Connor Rapp joins staff as a volunteer assistant

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Closing out the coaching staff for the upcoming 2021-22 season, Vanderbilt men’s tennis head coach Ian Duvenhage announced Wednesday the appointment of Connor Rapp as a volunteer assistant coach.

Rapp comes to Nashville following time as a student-athlete at UCLA, where he was a member of two Pac-12 championship squads and compiled nearly 40 wins at doubles.

“We are very excited to welcome Connor to our coaching staff,” added Duvenhage. “Ryan (Lipman) and I spent some time with him earlier this summer and after showing him campus and our facilities we collectively agreed that it would be a great fit. Connor brings experience from one of the most storied programs in college tennis history and our team will undoubtedly benefit from his enthusiastic mentorship.”

While in Los Angeles, Rapp was a true student-athlete. He was a 10-time honoree on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, an ITA Scholar-Athlete and a Pac-12 All-Academic selection.

Rapp is a native of Rancho Mirage, California.
