College MatchDay was created in 2013 by the USTA to showcase some of the best college tennis teams and campuses the sport has to offer. In 2017 with the opening of the Campus and its Collegiate Center in Orlando, College MatchDay now has a permanent home.

 

Since moving to the Campus, College MatchDay eventually produced the largest crowd to attend a regular-season college tennis match in both 2017 and 2018 as more than 1,700 fans attended the Florida vs. Florida State showdown each year.  

 

Some of the most memorable crowds have been a part of College MatchDay, including 1,033 fans for the first event in 2013 when the Florida women topped Stanford in Gainesville. One year later, 1,072 fans watched as visiting Texas defeated the TCU men.
