The USTA’s Tennis On Campus program is designed to provide college students with opportunities for team camaraderie, social networking and rivaled competition through tennis, without the rigors of a varsity program. Perfect for athletes who have chosen not to make the jump from high school to college varsity, it helps students maintain an active and healthy lifestyle in the form of co-ed, team-based play both regionally and nationally.

Currently the program is offered on more than 500 college campuses and services more than 30,000 students.
