Wilkes began playing women’s tennis at the varsity level in 1973.
During the 1976, 1977, and 1978 seasons the Lady Colonels captured the NPWIAA team championships. The 2006 season saw the squad establish a new school record for wins in a season when they compiled an overall record of 12-4.  The Lady Colonels also garnered a berth in the Freedom Conference playoffs for the first time. 

The 2006 season proved to be the most successful in school history.
During the 2006 campaign the Lady Colonels broke their record for wins in a season that was set just a year prior by amassing an outstanding 18-2 mark.  Wilkes also claimed their first Freedom Conference championship and earned their first berth in the NCAA Division III Championship.   

Lady Colonels have had their share of individual honors.
Twenty-five players have been named to the Middle Atlantic Conference Academic Honor Roll during the past 10 seasons. The Lady Colonels have also had nine players earn All-Middle Atlantic Conference honors, one conference Player of the Year, and one conference Rookie of the Year in the past six seasons.   

The Wilkes women's tennis team competes as a member of the Freedom Conference.
