First- and second-round competition takes place May 12-13 and features four teams playing in a single-elimination format.  The winner of each site advances to the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia, where the 16 teams will compete for the national championship May 18-23. The event will be hosted by the University of Georgia.

“The 64-team field is impressive again this year.  Congratulations to all participants for the hard work put in this year.  We’re excited for the competition ahead as teams advance to Athens.” said Judy Van Horn, executive associate athletics director at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, and the chair of the Division I Men’s and Women’s Tennis Committee.

The matches shall be regulation dual matches. Three doubles matches consisting of six-game sets will be played for one team point, followed by six singles matches, each valued at one team point; played the best of three sets. No-ad scoring will be used and a seven-point tiebreaker (first to seven points, must win by two points) will be played at six-games-all. The team winning four or more team points advances in the championship bracket.

During the championships, all matches will be stopped after the doubles point is decided. All remaining individual matches will be stopped once a team winner (four points won) has been determined.
