USTA Team Tennis on the College Campus
The USTA (United States Tennis Association) has partnered with the ITA (Intercollegiate Tennis Association) and NIRSA (National Intramural-Recreations Sports Association) to get students playing tennis on college campuses. The goal is to provide people of all ages with an easy-to-follow pathway of lined programs. The opportunities offered encourage participants to try the game, learn the skills, play with friends, and compete in match play.
The two main components that are best suited to the college campus are intramural tennis and "club" tennis. The USTA is available to help your school start a club team, or an intramural league if your school isn't currently offering one.
A "club" team is a group of students that share an interest in tennis, want to get together to play on a regular basis with each other, and that want to compete with other schools. The USTA can help you organize your club team and recruit players, and can also help set up matches with other schools and provide information on club tennis tournaments.
