The first event took place in 2005 in New Jersey with only 5 teams from 3 unique schools and has since grown! The Championship, which uses the exciting, dynamic, and co-ed World Team Tennis format, is the conclusion to the year-long Eastern Tennis On Campus Series. Finalists are granted an automatic bid to the USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship along with a stipend.
