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.|
|Rules Of Note:|
• All rostered players must have played in two events representing their team/school in the same academic year and prior to the USTA National Campus Championship. An event is considered a dual match, a tournament, or a USTA Campus Championship - Section Event.
• A player may play in only two sets per match, whether as a starter or a substitute (excluding the supertiebreaker).
