2007 USTA National Campus Championship to Take Place in Cary, N.C., April 26-28

April 5, 2007 11:26 AM

The USTA announced that the 2007 USTA National Campus Championship will take place in Cary, N.C., April 26-28. The National Championship, the culmination of the USTA Tennis on Campus Season, will be held at the Cary Tennis Park for the first time.

The USTA Tennis On Campus program features co-ed teams participating in intramural and intercollegiate (club) play using the World Team Tennis format on campuses nationwide. This year, 64 teams from throughout the nation will compete for the National Campus Championship. Over 400 colleges and 25,000 student athletes currently participate in the program.

On hand at this year’s National Championship will be Wayne Bryan, tennis personality and father of the world No. 1 doubles team, Mike and Bob Bryan.

The tournament is administered in partnership by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA), Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) and World TeamTennis (WTT). This partnership has not only resulted in record participation at this championship, but in growing interest and participation in club and intramural tennis on college campuses throughout the country. Many of the 64 participating programs were established in the last eight years and represent well over 4,000 additional players at their respective campuses.

As part of the Tennis on Campus season, all 17 USTA Sections hold Championships, with the winner of each receiving an automatic bid to the 2007 USTA Campus National Championship.

The inaugural USTA National Campus Championship, held in 2000, featured a total of 10 teams. Participation records have been set at each of the seven ensuing championships. Past championships have been held in Austin, Texas; Daytona Beach, Fla.; and San Diego, Calif.
