Are you looking to improve your tennis skills for the upcoming college tennis season? If so, the 2022 ITA Tennis-Point Summer Circuit powered by Universal Tennis might be the competition you need to up your game.
The ITA created the Summer Circuit for incoming first-year student-athletes and current collegiate players with tournament competition during the summer months. And because the tournaments operate on the Universal Tennis system, all match results contribute towards a Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) for each participant. As one of the only national NCAA-compliant series of tournaments offered, the Summer Circuit has kept student-athletes at the peak of their game for numerous years.
However, due to NCAA compliance purposes, the events are categorized as “open,” which means anyone — including high-level juniors and adults — can compete in these events as long as they are a current ITA player member. The ITA Tennis-Point Summer Circuit powered by Universal Tennis is held over six consecutive weekends, beginning in mid-June and continuing through July.
In addition, the Summer Circuit events also serve as a qualifier for the ITA National Summer Championships, showcasing 64 of the top collegiate players from around the country. The 2022 ITA Tennis-Point National Summer Championships by Universal Tennis will take place August 11-16 at the Scott Speicher Memorial Tennis Center located on the campus of Florida State University.
Returning NCAA Division I players who win the singles and doubles events at the Summer Championships will receive a wildcard into the main draw of the ITA Men’s & Women’s All-American Championships. Additionally, returning NCAA Division I players who are finalists at the Summer Championships will receive a wildcard into the qualifying round of the All-American Championships.
The Summer Circuit has been one of the most long-standing and successful events for collegiate athletes and high-level juniors on the ITA calendar. The circuit has grown from 35 to 60 tournaments during the past few years while doubling to over 5,000 players.
