CHICAGO, IL. – With play set to begin Friday from the 2023 ITA Division I Men’s National Team Indoor Championship, the draws are now set for the opening round of play at the XS Tennis Village in Chicago, Illinois.
Featuring 16 of the top teams from across the NCAA Division I level, the ITA Division I Men’s Indoor Championship has been a staple of the collegiate tennis landscape since it first began back in 1973.
Hosted by the University of Illinois, this year’s field will include 13 of the Top 15 teams in the Feb. 8 ITA Collegiate Tennis Team Rankings as this event continues to be must-watch action no matter when you tune in.
It will be Ohio State who comes in as the top seed at the 2023 ITA DI Men’s National Team Indoor Championship. Bolstering an 11-0 record, including four wins over teams who will also be competing at this year’s Indoor Championship, the Buckeyes have looked like the team to beat early on this season.
Coming in just behind Ohio State will be Kentucky. The Wildcats earn the second seed after starting their 2023 campaign 10-0 as they look to build on their 2022 season in which they finished as NCAA National Runners-Up.
Across all of the participating teams, it is the SEC that paces all conferences, having five representatives competing in this year’s tournament. Just behind the SEC are the ACC, Big 12, and Big Ten who each have three representatives competing.
As a single-elimination tournament, teams will play one match each day with the Championship Match being played on Monday, February 20, at 12 p.m. (CT). All teams are guaranteed to play at least three matches over the weekend through either the main or consolation draw.
