Nielsen Tennis Stadium will host another premier tennis championship, the USTA Midwest Tennis on Campus Championship, March 5-6. The championship will be held with a full draw of 32 teams. It will be one of the largest section Championships in the country and the largest indoor championship. The University of Wisconsin Club Team has been tournament winner 2005 and 2007-2009. Winning teams from the section championship will receive a stipend to play at the USTA Campus Championship from April 15-17, 2010 in Surprise, AZ

The USTA Midwest Tennis on Campus League has been in existence and growing since 1982. The USTA/Midwest Section Collegiate Committee formulated the campus league for non-varsity recreational play in the USTA/Midwest Section. Currently, there are 45 college clubs teams in the league with growing interest throughout the section. A schedule is arranged for the colleges to play one another at home or away depending on the students' schedules! Formats are generally tri or quad matches, so there is a great deal of play for everyone. The scoring is up to the home teams based on court availability, but the matches that are counted are men’s/women’s doubles/singles and mixed (5 matches). Because of the success of the program, in 2008, the 5 state league was divided into two conferences, an east and a west conference. Non-conference play is offered as well as the Badger Classic Tournament in fall.

Good luck to all participants in both events!
