The University of Florida tennis club hosted the Gator Bowl in late September as part of the USTA Florida 'Tennis on Campus' 2009-2010 schedule, with the University of Central Florida (UCF) coming into Gainesville and successfully defending their title from last year.

UCF team captain Luis Duco led his team over eight other teams competing for the Gator Bowl title in Florida Gulf Coast, Florida State University, University of Florida, University of South Florida, Auburn University, University of Miami, Louisiana State University, and Stetson University.

The format consisted of two singles and two doubles matches for each squad. The UCF team came out on top in the men's draw, and UF were the champions in the women's draw. Auburn won both the men's and women's consolation draws.

"The tournament was a great success this year and we had perfect weather," said tournament organizer Emmett Walsh of the University of Florida. "A lot of great matches were played over the weekend, and it was nice to interact with some new teams."
