Overview:

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) and its member schools will participate in a month of service in 2017. During October, the ITA will visibly promote its student-athletes and their service outside of the tennis court. Schools across all five divisions of college tennis will compete against one another in a friendly hour’s challenge. Each participating school will receive a certificate of participation following the competition, and the winning school(s) will receive extensive media coverage from the ITA.  

Why an ITA Community Service Month?
"A great measure of the success of our ITA tennis programs is that they are fully embedded in the lives of their campuses and in their communities. The ITA Community Service Month will represent the totality of the body of work of all of our ITA programs combined in giving back as true leaders." – Timothy Russell, ITA CEO
