Welcome to the USTA’s Tennis On Campus program!
The USTA’s Tennis On Campus program is designed to provide college students with opportunities for team camaraderie, social networking, and rivaled competition through tennis without the rigors of a varsity program. Perfect for athletes who have chosen not to make the jump from high school to college varsity, Tennis On Campus offers co-ed team-based play, regional and national championship competition, and helps students maintain active and healthy lifestyles through their college years. Currently, the program is offered on over 500 college campuses and services over 30,000 students.
What is Tennis On Campus?
The USTA Tennis On Campus program is anything and everything recreational tennis on college campuses across the country. This includes sport club tennis teams, intramural tennis leagues and tournaments, recreational classes, and physical education classes. While all pieces of recreational college tennis are important, much of the Tennis On Campus program is focused on sport club tennis teams, like the USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship, USTA Tennis On Campus Section Championships and many of the other Tennis On Campus events.
USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship
The USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship is the pinnacle of the Tennis On Campus program. Hosted in partnership by the USTA, National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA), World TeamTennis (WTT), and Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), this venue features 64 college and university co-ed teams competing for bragging rights and the illustrious title of National Champion. Club Tennis Teams can qualify for a bid to the USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship through participation in their USTA Tennis On Campus Section Championships.

Designed to provide a competitive play opportunity “closer to home,” these high quality events help pull teams together for a fun-filled weekend of co-ed team play, social networking, and leadership development.
Over the years, these events have grown in number, size, and quality. Like the USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship, the USTA Tennis On Campus Section Championships feature the World TeamTennis format.
