INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA Division I Men’s Tennis Subcommittee has selected the 64 teams and 16 first- and second-round sites for the 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Tennis Championship. Per NCAA policy, the top 16 seeds are guaranteed to host if a bid was submitted and criteria are met, and matchups between conference opponents were avoided in the first two rounds of the championship.  

First- and second-round competition takes place May 11-12 or 12-13 and features four teams playing in a single-elimination format. The winner of each site advances to the Wake Forest Tennis Complex in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where the 16 teams will compete for the national championship May 18-22. The event will be hosted by Wake Forest University.

“Congratulations to all participants for the hard work put in this year. The 64-team field is impressive again this year. We’re excited for the competition ahead as teams advance to Winston-Salem.” 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.
