College tennis heats up every year around the ITA Kickoff Weekend. A total of 120 men’s and women’s DI tennis teams battle it out in a single-elimination regional event for the right to play in the annual National Team Indoor Championships.
The ITA Kickoff Weekend is unique in college athletics. Each regional competition is determined during the Kickoff Weekend Draft, where teams select which regional they wish to participate in. Selections are made in order of the final 2018-2019 Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Rankings.
The winners from each of the four-team ITA Kickoff Weekend regionals advance to the 2020 Oracle ITA Division I National Men’s Team Indoor Championship, hosted by the University of Wisconsin, and the 2020 Oracle ITA Division I National Women’s Team Indoor Championship, hosted by the University of Illinois.
