Mississippi men, Texas A&M women win 2009 Attendance Race

The Mississippi men and Texas A&M women finished the 2009 season atop the second annual ITA Attendance Race standings for regular season home matches. Ole Miss drew 5,550 fans to its matches this season at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center and Gillom Tennis Center. The Rebels had a strong finish, fighting off 2008 Attendance Race champs, Virginia, and Georgia, each of which drew in over 5,000 fans this season. For the second year in a row, the Texas A&M women led the race from start to finish, packing in 4,583 fans at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center this season. The total was over 2,000 more than runner-up Alabama.

Both programs also finished atop the race standings in average attendance. Mississippi drew an average of 617 fans for its nine home matches while Texas A&M drew 417 for its 11 home matches. The Rebels were also able to post five of the top eight match totals on the season but it was Texas A&M and Georgia who came out on top, both surpassing the 1,000 mark with 1,089 and 1,060, respectively. The Aggie women were able to complete the sweep by recording seven of the top 10 match totals, including five matches that surpassed the 500 attendance mark.

All told, highlighting the 2009 ITA Attendance Race was the more than 60,000 fans taking in home matches for the top 10 men's and women’s race leaders.

While the 2009 regular season ITA Attendance Race has reached its end, there is still one more race to be completed…the 2009 postseason ITA Attendance Race. That’s right! In an attempt to show support this postseason, be sure to submit your attendance totals by May 29 if your team is hosting the NCAA first and second rounds. Congratulations to our regular season winners and good luck to those participating in the postseason!
