The Shenandoah University tennis programs entered a new era in the summer of 2010 with the addition of Larry Hubbard as the program's new head coach.
Hubbard, who is the second full-time tennis coach in school history, took over the position from Kimberly Scruton in June 2010.
Hubbard came to Shenandoah from his position of Director of Tennis at Ivy Hill Golf and Tennis Club in Forest, Virginia and has over 20 years of intercollegiate coaching experience.
From 2000-2005, Hubbard was the head men’s and women’s tennis coach at Liberty University after coming to the Division I institution in 1999 to be the head men’s coach.
In his final five years with the Flames, Hubbard also held administrative positions within the department, including assisting with fundraising initiatives, and rose to an Associate Athletics Director position in 2003.
The Richmond, Virginia native moved to UNC-Asheville in January 2006 as interim head tennis coach and was named to the permanent position the following June.
Hubbard has also had various additional positions within the tennis community in the past 10 years including working with Total Tennis Training in South Carolina and with the USTA in junior development for southwest Virginia.
Hubbard, who was a USILA All-America in lacrosse at the University of Maryland and a member of the Terps 1973 national championship squad in that sport, coached college lacrosse as an assistant at the University of Delaware and the University of Maryland-Baltimore County before becoming the head men’s lacrosse coach at Lynchburg College in 1985.
