The NCAA Division III Women's Tennis Championship is the annual tennis tournament hosted by the NCAA to determine the team, singles, and doubles championships Division III of women's collegiate tennis.

Tennis was one of twelve women's sports added to the NCAA championship program for the 1981-82 school year, as the NCAA engaged in battle with the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women for sole governance of women's collegiate sports. The AIAW continued to conduct its established championship program in the same twelve (and other) sports; however, after a year of dual women's championships, the NCAA conquered the AIAW and usurped its authority and membership.

Williams are the most successful program, with 8 national titles. The Ephs are also the reigning national champions, winning their eighth in 2015.[1]
