Results From the ITA Summer Circuit
Release: July 19, 2012
By: Andrew Green, Assistant SID
BOULDER - For the third straight year, the University of Colorado will be hosting the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Summer Circuit this Saturday and Sunday at the South Campus Courts.  Admission and parking are both free and open to the public.

Singles play will begin Saturday at 8:30 a.m.

The University of Denver and the United States Air Force Academy hosted similar events earlier this month.

"We are excited to host this event again at CU," said tennis head coach Nicole Kenneally. "It is a great opportunity for local players to mix it up with college players who compete around the country."

Nearly 30,000 men and women have competed in ITA Summer Circuit events since it began in 1993. The circuit provides college (and junior and alumni) players the opportunity to compete in organized events virtually year round. Although the primary focus of the circuit is to provide incoming freshmen and collegiate players the chance to compete in the summer months, for NCAA compliance purposes, the events within the ITA Summer Circuit are categorized as "open"; therefore anyone is eligible to compete in these events as long as he/she is a current ITA member.

The ITA Summer Circuit is currently made up of eight regional circuits (East, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest, Central, Mountain, Texas and West) consisting of four consecutive open tournaments played during the month of July, leading up to the USTA/ITA National Summer Championships in Bloomington, Indiana in August.

The entry fee for all Summer Circuit tournaments is $60 (includes singles and doubles), with the exception of the National Clay Court Championships (Mt. Lebanon/Pittsburgh) and the USTA/ITA National Summer Championships which are both $70 (includes singles and doubles).

All tournaments will use a 10-point match tie-breaker for the third set of singles; all doubles will be 8 game pro-sets. An American player who competes in at least three tournaments and is the point leader for that Region will automatically qualify and receive some travel reimbursement for the USTA/ITA National Summer Championships.
