Two-time national champion and three-time national coach of the year Chase Hodges is the first-ever head men's and women's tennis coach in Georgia Gwinnett College history.
A decorated coach at all levels of collegiate tennis, Hodges delivered GGC its first-ever national titles in any sport with both the Men's and Women's 2014 NAIA National Championship titles in May.
Hodges has 16 years of collegiate coaching experience- including the last 13 as a head coach- and boasts the distinction of being the only head coach in NCAA tennis history to lead five different programs to an ITA national ranking, while leading seven different programs to a national ranking in any poll.
He owns a career 301-99 (.753) combined men's and women's record as a head coach, including a 230-61 men's record.
Hodges also oversees operations at the recently acquired GGC Tennis Facility in Lawrenceville.
The GGC men's squad went 21-0 in 2014, capping an unbeaten season with a 5-1 victory over defending-champion Embry-Riddle (Fla.) in the national title match. The Grizzlies earned six NAIA All-Americans, including three First-Team selections. During the year, the Grizzlies knocked off NCAA Division I, II and III teams, plus the top NAIA programs.
Meanwhile, the GGC women's team won the 2014 championship against Embry-Riddle, in a dramatic 5-4 decision. It stood as Hodges' 300th career win as a head coach in collegiate tennis. The Grizzlies had eight NAIA All-Americans on the season, including a pair of First-Team players. During the year, the GGC women also earned victories against NCAA Division I, II and III competition, plus the top NAIA programs.
Following the championships, Hodges was named NAIA National Coach of the Year for both men's and women's tennis, capping the Grizzlies' very first season of postseason eligibility with a pair of No. 1 rankings. He also was named 2014 Wilson/ITA NAIA Men's Tennis Coach of the Year, days after being named South Region winner.
Previously to coaching at GGC, Hodges spent time coaching at Georgia State University, Drake University, University of North Carolina-Asheville, and Longwood University.
Hodges played two years collegiately at North Carolina State University before finishing his career at UNC-Wilmington.

I had such a great time at the adidas Tennis Camp. I met amazing NCAA players and coaches. They taught and inspired me to do so many things. I can't wait for next year!
My daughter returned from camp with so much confidence. Not only was her game greatly improved, but she has such a passion to keep playing. Thanks again!
It was great to bond with other girls who love the same thing I do. We had so much fun at camp. The coaches were really good and taught us a lot of new things. Save me a spot next year.
