Zach_NMSUCollege club teams from across the Southwest areas will descend on El Paso in late February for the Tennis on Campus Championships-Southwest in the Sun City. 


Tennis on Campus, which is offered at virtually every major university in the nation, has steadily grown from a program of just a few college teams participating in the late 1990s to become a vibrant program that now includes more than 30,000 students and 500 universities playing in the United States, including eight universities here in the Southwest. 

The 2013 USTA Southwest Tennis on Campus Championships will likely feature most of the major universities in our Southwest region of Arizona, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas county... including University of New Mexico, New Mexico State, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, University of Texas-El Paso, Arizona State, Northern Arizona University, Pima Community College and three-time defending Southwest champions, University of Arizona.
 

 

This team-format event will be held over three days beginning Friday, February 22 at the 22-court Ellis Tennis Center, one of the premier public facilities in our region and a many-time host of Section Championship caliber events, including League Championship events, Jr. Team Tennis Section Championships and several major adult and junior tournaments.
