TEMPE, Ariz. – Sixteen of the top Division I men’s tennis teams will compete for an indoor national championship, as the University of Washington hosts the 2018 ITA Division I National Men’s Team Indoor Championship.
Action will take place at both the Nordstrom Tennis Center and Seattle Tennis Club. The four-day event begins on Friday, February 16, and concludes on Monday, February 19. The University of Virginia won the 2017 event and would go on to claim the NCAA National Championship as well.
The ITA Division I National Men’s Team Indoor Championship is in its 43rd year of existence. Fifteen teams qualified for the event by winning their respective 2018 ITA Kick-Off Weekend four-team regional, while Wisconsin received an automatic bid as the host site. The teams will compete in a single-elimination tournament over a four-day span to crown a national indoor champion. Each team is guaranteed three matches at the event.
The seeds in the National Men’s Team Indoor Championship field were determined based on an unpublished ranking conducted by the National Ranking Committee. Wake Forest and Ohio State are the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds, respectively.
Stanford holds the most ITA Division I National Women’s Team Indoor Championship titles with 12, followed by UCLA with seven and Virginia with six.
