The Nation’s top collegiate tennis teams have been testing each other’s prowess in winter competition since 1976, when the National Collegiate Tennis Classic was launched in the Southern California desert at Palm Springs. The N.C.T.C. showcases “The Best Of The NCAA.” in the annual event.

Teams participating include: USC, UCLA, Oklahoma State, Texas, Baylor, Boise State, Pepperdine, San Francisco, and Wichita.

The annual tournament has grown in national stature over the years and has been called “The Wimbledon of College Tennis” by the press. It is now one of the major collegiate tennis events and one of the few to feature both men’s and women’s competitions.
