|ITA Kick-Off Weekend|
|The spring season of collegiate tennis shifts into full gear January 27-30 during the annual ITA Kick-Off Weekend. Sixty men's and sixty women's teams will be competing across the country for the right to qualify at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships, to be hosted in February by the University of Virginia. The 15 men's and 15 women's universities hosting ITA Kick-Off Weekend events were designated as host sites in order of their year-end 2011 Campbell/ITA team ranking. Three visiting schools will travel to each host site for a four-team tournament. The host school will meet the No. 4 seed, the No. 2 seed will play the No. 3 seed, and the winners will come back the following day to play for a berth at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships.
With so much at stake and so many good matches on the horizon, the ITA has put together in-depth previews from all 15 men's and 15 women's events. Just click on the host site links below to find out what to watch for during ITA Kick-Off Weekend.
