ITA Summer Circuit

April 6, 2016 12:18 PM


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

These events are a great stepping stone for our juniors as well as competitive opportunities for our competitive adults. This circuit is of great value to our section as it provides back to back events for a month a top level competition. These events create much needed opportunities for more local ‘semi-pro competition’ for our Collegiate, Junior as well as Adult Open players.

The ITA Sumer Circuit brings together groups of players that would normally not connect due to certain age based events or programs with age restriction.  Also this circuit provides an advancement opportunity as the men’s and women’s circuit winner progress on to Indiana University for the national playoff event in August.

Anyone is eligible to compete in these events as long as they are members of the ITA.
