Many of the nation’s top singles and doubles women’s and men’s competitors from Division II, Division III, NAIA and JUCO are set to compete in the 2021 ITA Cup.
For the fifth consecutive year, the sprawling and gorgeous Rome Tennis Center at Berry College serves as the host location for this annual ITA event. The history of the ITA Cup, previously National Small College Championships, dates back to 1986. It is the only recognized national singles championship event for Division II and NAIA.
