NCAA Isn’t the Only Game on Campus

Florida Chomp

NCAA tennis isn’t for everyone. But that doesn’t mean everyone can’t play college tennis! Tennis On Campus is a great program that is continuing to grow by leaps and bounds. If your junior is looking for a way to stay involved in the game but isn’t ready or willing to commit to the rigors of NCAA tennis, please have him/her research the TOC options at the schools on his/her wish list!

And, now, this word from USTA:

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) today announced the 48 coed intramural and club tennis teams, representing colleges and universities throughout the country, have been selected to compete at the fifth annual USTA Tennis On Campus (TOC) Fall Invitational at Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center in Hilton Head Island, S.C. The event, taking place Oct. 9-11, serves as the national kickoff for the Tennis On Campus season and provides a great opportunity for students to compete for their colleges and universities.

In last year’s final, the University of Florida beat Auburn University, 25-18.

The winner and runner-up from the tournament will qualify for an automatic bid to compete for the national title at the 2016 USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship, to be held April 14-16, 2016, in Cary, N.C.
