Tournament Format:
The USTA National Campus Championship uses the World TeamTennis format.  A match consists of five no-ad sets and includes men's singles and doubles, women's singles and doubles, and mixed doubles.  Each no-ad set is won by the first team to reach six games - a nine-point tiebreaker will be played at five games all in any set.  Teams will play "Round Robin"/"Pool Play" and then advance into bracket play.  Teams are guaranteed four matches (if the tournament limit of 64 teams is reached).
Securing A Bid:
Teams can secure a bid in the 64 team field in two ways.  The first way is to earn an automatic bid through their respective USTA Section; contact your USTA Section's Tennis On Campus Coordinator for more information specific to your USTA Section.  The second way is by securing an at-large/first-come, first-serve bid.  For more information on entry priority and at-large/first-come, first-serve bids, please see above.  Only one team per school will be granted a berth into the Championship.
Teams:  Minimum of 4 players (2 men, 2 women); maximum of 10 players.
