ITA 2010_Regional_logo_web_USTA_ITAThe USTA Florida Section will host USTA/ITA Regional Championships in late September for Division II tennis men's and women's teams in Pensacola, junior college women in Altamonte Springs, and NAIA men's and women's teams in Daytona Beach.
 
"Local clubs, USTA 10 and Under Tennis programs and whole tennis communities are encouraged to come out and support the host schools and all the collegiate student-athlete participants representing the many different colleges and universities," says Stephanie Neppl, director of communications for the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
 
Florida regional championships will be held at the following sites:
 
Division II Men and Women -- University of West Florida, Pensacola, Sept. 27-30, 2013

Contact: Cindy Harkins, 407-665-2100, charkins@seminolecountyfl.gov
 
The USTA/ITA Regional Championships feature the top men's and women's players from each of the ITA's regions. In all, 8,000 varsity tennis players from 600 schools will participate in USTA/ITA Regional Championships across the country.
 
The small college (NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College) singles and doubles champions from the USTA/ITA Regional Championships will advance to the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships, held Oct. 10-13 at the Three Oaks Tennis Center in Fort Myers, Fla. The USTA/ITA National Small College Championships is comprised of the eight regional champions (and/or at-large selections) from NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA and junior/community colleges.
 
The USTA/ITA National Small College Championship is the only national championship event for individual singles and doubles at the NCAA Division II and NAIA levels. It is also the only tournament that combines all levels of junior/community colleges (NJCAA Divisions I and III and the California division). The singles and doubles champions at each divisional level then compete to become the overall "Super Bowl" champions. The Super Bowl champions earn wildcards into the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, featuring the Division I regional winners, on Nov. 7-10, 2013, hosted by the USTA at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
 
All levels of varsity college tennis (NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College) are competing in one comprehensive event at the National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, and any ITA varsity student-athlete has the opportunity to play and win at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
