Before heading back to campus for the start of the fall season and the 2014-15 school year, the Princeton women's tennis team is in Europe for the quadrennial Marx Tour, a venture made possible by the generosity of alumnus Louis Marx Jr. '53.

The tour has taken place every four years since 1990, with the last trip, in 2010, to France. This year, while the men's team went to South Africa in June, the women have started their trip to Sweden, Denmark and Spain.

The trip began Sunday, Aug. 17 with the venture across the Atlantic to Stockholm, Sweden, where the team will tour sites including Stockholm City Hall, the home of the Swedish royal family at Drottningholm Palace, the Nobel Museum and the city's "old town" called Gamla stan along with playing a match against the Good to Great tennis academy, an organization run in part by Swedish former pro Magnus Norman.

Friday, Aug. 22, the team will head to Copenhagen, Denmark, where the Tigers will tour the city's New Harbor and climb the 400 steps to the top of the Church of our Saviour for a panorama of the city.

The trip will wrap on the southern coast of Spain where the team will visit the marina in Benalmadena, a town on the Mediterranean between Malaga and Gibraltar. Members of the team will be contributing first-hand accounts of their journey to be shared here on GoPrincetonTigers.com.
