Summer Tennis Options

It's summer.  Time to kick back, relax, and forget about school for a little bit.  While you and your club tennis teammates may be taking a vacation, it doesn't mean that you tennis game has to suffer.  The USTA, WTT, and ITA have several summer tennis options that are sure to keep your game finely tuned and fit your busy schedule:

USTA League Tennis
USTA League Tennis is the country's largest recreational tennis league, helping more than 295,000 players nationwide get on the court, have a good time, and step up their game.  Many college players find that joining a league tennis team is a great way to continue playing and improving their tennis game during the summer.  If several members of your team will be in the same area, you could also form a team of your own.  Leagues are available for all ability levels across the entire country.  For more information, please visit the USTA League Tennis homepage at http://www.usta.com/adultseniorleague.

USTA Tournament Tennis
USTA Tournament Tennis is another way to compete during the summer months.  Most tournaments take place over a weekend and are run as singles and/or doubles draws.  Just like with USTA League Tennis, USTA Tournament Tennis is available across the country.  The tournament calendar is always changing to include more events.  For more information or to enter a tournament in your area, please visit the USTA Tournament Tennis homepage at http://www.usta.com/adultseniortournament.

World TeamTennis Recreational League
The World TeamTennis Recreational League program features year-round leagues that have provided playing opportunities for players of all ages and abilities across the United States since 1985.  The format is familiar to collegiate club tennis players; it is the same format used for the USTA Campus Championships.  Teams may also have an opportunity to qualify for WTT National Qualifiers and the National Championship.  For more information or to join a local WTT league, please visit the World TeamTennis homepage at http://www.wtt.com.

ITA Collegiate Summer Circuit
The ITA Collegiate Summer Circuit, presented by the USTA, began in 2003 and now boasts 24 regional circuit events that will take place coast-to-coast during the month of July.  This year, these events will culminate at Indiana University, Aug. 11-15, for the 2007 ITA National Summer Championships.  The ITA Collegiate Summer Circuit draws many varsity collegiate tennis players but is open to all amateurs, including collegiate club tennis players.  For more information or to obtain an entry form for a circuit event in your area, please visit the ITA Collegiate Summer Circuit homepage at http://www.itatennis.com/Summer07/main.htm.
