SAINT PETER, Minnesota (September 22) – Gustavus Adolphus College will host the 2022 ITA Midwest Regional Championships in Saint Peter, Minnesota this weekend. Running from Friday 23rd September to Monday 26th September, the tournament will feature many of the region’s top teams at multiple venues throughout St Peter and the surrounding area. The tournament starts on Friday at 9 am.
The Swanson Indoor Tennis Center on the western edge of the Gustavus campus will serve as the headquarters for the ITA Midwest Regional Championships, with games also being held at the adjacent Brown Outdoor Tennis Complex.
The singles and doubles champions of the ITA Regional Championships will advance to the ITA National Small College Championships. The ITA National Small College Championships consist of the eight regional champions and eight runners-up (and/or major selections) from NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA, and junior/community colleges. Over 8,000 student-athletes from NCAA Divisions I, II, III, NAIA, junior and community colleges compete in one of the 85 USTA/ITA Regional Championships held across the country.
The ITA National Small College Championships began in 1986 and annually crowns singles and doubles national champions for men and women in each of ITA’s four small collegiate divisions (NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA, and Junior/Community College). The ITA National Small College Championship is the sole national championship event for singles and doubles at the NCAA Division II and NAIA levels. It is also the only tournament combining all junior/community college levels (NJCAA Divisions I and III and the California Division). The singles and doubles champions at each division level then compete to become the overall winners of the “Super Bowl.” The “Super Bowl” champions will receive wildcards into the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships with a chance to win the culmination event, held at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
As the governing body of collegiate tennis, the ITA promotes both the athletic and academic achievements of the collegiate tennis community. Founded in 1956 and based in Skillman, NJ, the ITA administers numerous regional and national championships, the USTA-presented ITA Collegiate Summer Circuit, and the ITA Rankings for men’s and women’s tennis in NCAA Divisions I, II, and III, NAIA, and junior college levels. The ITA also has a comprehensive awards program for players and coaches to recognize excellence in scholarship, leadership and sportsmanship. To learn more about the ITA, click here.
