UCLA Women Headed to USTA/ITA National Team Indoors

Dec. 19, 2003

SKILLMAN, N.J. - The UCLA men's and women's tennis teams have been selected for the 16-team fields at the 2004 USTA/ITA National Men's and Women's Team Indoor Championships taking place Feb. 5-8 in Seattle and Madison, Wis., respectively.

The USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Championships are collegiate tennis' premier indoor team tournaments. The men's championship has been held since 1973 and the women's tournament began in 1988. Each season these tournaments also offer a preview of the teams to beat in the May NCAA Championships. The field for the USTA/ITA National Women's Team Indoor Championships, hosted by the University of Wisconsin, is: BYU, California, Georgia, Harvard, Kentucky, North Carolina, Northwestern, Southern California, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UCLA, Vanderbilt, Washington, William & Mary and host Wisconsin.

The field for the USTA/ITA National Men's Team Indoor Championships, hosted by the University of Washington is: Baylor, Boise State, California, Duke, Florida, Harvard, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Stanford, Texas, Texas A&M, Tulsa, UCLA, Vanderbilt and host Washington.

Illinois broke the the Pac-10's stranglehold on the men's title last season, beating Florida 4-2 in the final. Prior to this four different Pac-10 schools (Stanford, UCLA, California and Southern California) had won the title every year since 1987. Stanford has won a record 12 titles.

The Stanford women have won a record six national team indoor titles.

The men's tournament takes place at the Nordstrom Tennis Center and Seattle Tennis Club and the women's tournament is being held at the A.C. Nielsen Tennis Stadium in Madison.

The collegiate tennis dual match season begins in January and concludes in May with the season-ending NCAA Championships. For much of the country (at least) the first third of the season is played indoors.
