TEMPE, Ariz. – The 2016 ITA Attendance Race concluded in April, with both the TCU men and Georgia women drawing the biggest crowds of the season.
The Horned Frogs welcomed 1,816 fans to the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center in Fort Worth, Texas, on April 20 to witness the team’s 4-0 victory over Baylor that secured TCU a share of the Big 12 regular-season title. TCU also eclipsed the 1,000-fan threshold against Oklahoma State (1,404 on April 10) and Oklahoma (1,287 on April 8).
An SEC battle between Georgia and Florida saw 1,681 fans pack the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia, on April 8. Virginia (1,142 fans versus Wake Forest) and Ole Miss (1,030 fans versus Mississippi State) were other April highlights on the men’s side.
The Dan Magill Tennis Complex was a busy place in April, as not only did the men attract big crowds to its matches, but so did the women. The Bulldogs’ dual match against SEC rival Florida saw 1,032 fans in the stands. Matches against South Carolina (411) and Tennessee (342) were the second- and fourth-highest totals in April.
In addition to honoring the teams that drew the most fans to a single match in February, March and April, the ITA will also recognize those teams that had more than 300 fans attend a match each month. Those matches are listed below in the men’s and women’s Wall of Fame below.
