The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (“ITA”) is pleased to announce that Tennis-Point will become the title sponsor of the ITA Tennis-Point Summer Circuit powered by Universal Tennis and the ITA Tennis-Point National Summer Championships by Universal Tennis.
Furthering their commitment to the sport of tennis, and more specifically college tennis, Tennis-Point now becomes a part of one of the most prestigious nationwide collegiate circuits where thousands of incoming and current student-athletes have been competing for over 40 years.
“We are thrilled to have Tennis-Point on board as the title sponsor for the ITA Summer Circuit powered by Universal Tennis,” said ITA Senior Director Cory Brooks. “The ITA Summer Circuit is one of the most long-standing and successful programs within the ITA portfolio. Over the last eight years, the circuit has almost doubled in size, from 35 events to 60 and from 2,500 unique participants to over 5,000. Tennis Point’s commitment to the growth of tennis at the grassroots level makes them a perfect fit for this ever-growing program.”
Created to provide high-level juniors, incoming first-year student-athletes, and current collegiate players the chance to compete in the summer months, the ITA Tennis-Point Summer Circuit powered by Universal Tennis offers a unique opportunity for college athletes to compete against high-level competition when they are away from school.
“Tennis-Point is excited to further our partnership with the ITA as the title sponsor of the ITA Summer Circuit,” said Colleen Leonard, Tennis-Point Marketing Director. “Supporting collegiate athletes, and engaging fans and players all over the country this summer is going to bring a new level of energy to college tennis and continue to grow the game at the grassroots level.”
Not just committed to furthering the ITA Summer Circuit, Tennis-Point has also committed to becoming the title sponsor of the ITA National Summer Championships by Universal Tennis.
Serving as the pinnacle of the summer season, the ITA National Summer Championship by Universal Tennis features a 64 player field, including the top five point finishers in the Summer Circuit, who are all looking to secure a wildcard spot into the ITA Men’s and Women’s All-American Championships later in the year.
Keep an eye out in the coming days as the schedule and location of the 2022 ITA Tennis-Point Summer Championships powered by Universal Tennis will be announced as well as the dates and location of the 2022 ITA Tennis-Point National Summer Championship by Universal Tennis.
