Garnet Aces is the official fan club of the University of South Carolina men’s and women’s tennis programs. The club, which was started by the Gamecocks’ women’s tennis Head Coach Kevin Epley and men’s tennis Head Coach Josh Goffi, works to support South Carolina’s tennis programs and recruit more fans to watch the teams’ matches at the Carolina Tennis Center.
Joining the Garnet Aces is free and easy to do for Gamecock fans of all ages. All fans have to do is attend a South Carolina men’s or women’s tennis match and ask to sign up at the marketing table at the entrance of the facility. Once signed up, fans will receive a Garnet Aces membership card that they can get punched each time they attend a match at the Carolina Tennis Center. Fans win a new prize for each star punched on their card. If fans attend 10 or more matches in one season, they will be entered to win a custom Wilson racket and an invitation to a free summer clinic.
