USTA Texas has created the Texas Tennis On Campus Series, which is comprised of eight, one-day events throughout Texas. The series events use the fun and interactive World TeamTennis format - using coed teams with a minimum of four players (2 men and 2 women). Colleges can attend as many of these events as they desire. Depending on court availability, each team is guaranteed 3 matches at each series event. The results from the series events assist in seeding at the USTA Tennis On Campus Texas Championship.
Overall, my experience with Tennis on Campus was a very memorable one because it gave me an opportunity to meet new people who shared a love for tennis and a number of those same people became some of my good friends. These relationships were fostered from getting together for practices, traveling all over Texas to compete against a variety of opponents, and having an array of club socials that included ping pong tournaments and Intramural basketball teams.
The format for TOC was World Team Tennis rules which gave the matches an added thrill and excitement as the matches are quick and intense and every game counts for your team. These sorts of lasting memories is why I would rate my TOC experience as great and I would encourage others who are interested in TOC to reach out and give it a shot. - Joseph Walters, UT '17”
