INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division III Men’s Tennis Committee has selected the 42 teams that will compete in the 2011 NCAA Division III Men’s Tennis Championships.

The teams will play a single-elimination tournament with the first, second and third rounds played at regional sites, May 13-15 or May 12-14.  Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Colleges will host the team championships finals, which will be held May 24-26 at the Biszantz Family Tennis Center in Claremont, Calif. Student-athletes selected to the individual championships will be announced Wednesday, May 11. 

The championship provides for a 42-team tournament. Automatic qualification (AQ) is granted to 29 conference champions, which form "Pool A."  Seven teams are selected from true independents and schools from conferences that do not have an automatic bid for their champions (Pool B).  The remaining six teams are selected from those teams in conferences with automatic bids that did not win their conference's AQ and the remaining Pool B institutions (Pool C).  The teams are geographically paired, whenever possible.
