NCAA Championships at the Campus
The USTA National Campus first hosted the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships in 2019, and is honored to welcome the D-I Championships again in 2021 as well as the NCAA Division III Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships in 2022.
On Oct. 14, 2020, the USTA learned that the National Campus was selected as the host for the 2023 NCAA D-I, D-II and D-III Men's and Women's Tennis Championships as part of a hybrid bid proposed by the USTA to bring the full slate of NCAA tennis championships to a single site.
This will mark the first time in the history of any NCAA sport that one venue will host all six (DI-III men and women) divisional championships in a given year.
The final site of the NCAA Championships welcomes the nation’s top eight men’s and women’s collegiate programs that compete for a team championship. It also entertains the top 64 men and top 64 women competing for the NCAA singles titles and top 32 men’s and women’s doubles teams competing for the NCAA doubles crowns.
