ST. PETER, Minn. (September 28) – Gustavus Adolphus College will host the 2022 ITA Midwest Regional Championships this weekend in Saint Peter, Minnesota. Running from Friday, September 30th through Monday, October 3rd, the tournament will feature 25 of the region’s top teams across multiple locations in Saint Peter and Mankato.
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 and runners-up of the ITA regional championships advance to the ITA cup. The ITA Cup consists of the eight regional champions (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 84 USTA/ITA Regional Championships held across the country.
The ITA Cup, formerly the ITA National Small College Championships, began in 1986 and annually crowns the men’s and women’s national singles and doubles champions in each of ITA’s four small collegiate divisions (NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA, and Junior/Community College) . The ITA Cup is the only 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 in the Oracle ITA National Fall Championships.
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 an extensive awards program for players and coaches to recognize excellence in scholarship, leadership and sportsmanship. To learn more about the ITA, click here.
