Southern Colleges And Universities Selected for TOC Tournament

October 2, 2013 12:08 PM
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – The United States Tennis Association has announced the 32 coed intramural and club tennis teams, representing colleges and universities throughout the country, selected to compete at the fourth annual USTA Tennis On Campus (TOC) Fall Invitational. Fifteen of the schools are in USTA Southern.
 
The Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center in Hilton Head Island, S.C., will host the event, taking place Oct. 11-13. The winner and runner-up from the tournament will qualify for an automatic bid to compete for the national title at the 2014 USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship in Surprise, Ariz., April 10-12, 2014. 
 
“We’re thrilled for this year’s Fall Invitational, which serves as a national kick-off and builds excitement for the entire Tennis On Campus season,” said Glenn Arrington, National Manager, USTA Tennis On Campus. “This event continues to gain popularity each year. It’s a great opportunity for players to represent their college or university in a fun and competitive atmosphere.” 
 
This year, 15 schools will make their debut at the 2013 TOC Fall Invitational. Duke University took home top honors at last year’s tournament, besting the University of Virginia, 26-23, in the final.

The TOC Fall Invitational is designed to give students the chance to compete against club teams from other colleges to maximize their playing experience and to provide an opportunity to claim an automatic bid into the National Championship. 
 
During the Fall Invitational, students will not only have an opportunity to socialize with other teams but also network with representatives from both the Tennis Industry Association and the Professional Tennis Registry to learn about future career opportunities in tennis. Following the tournament, schools continue to compete around the country on a section level, within the USTA’s 17 sections. 
 
The USTA Tennis On Campus program features more than 35,000 college students competing nationwide in intramural and intercollegiate club play using the World TeamTennis format. Since its inception in 2000, Tennis On Campus has grown significantly and today is played on more than 600 college campuses across the country. Developed by the USTA in partnership with NIRSA, World TeamTennis and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, the Tennis On Campus program gives college students the opportunity to build leadership skills, network in a coed sports environment and compete on a college team without the rigors of playing in a varsity program. With year-round match play and regional and national championship competition, students maintain active and healthy 
lifestyles through their college years.
