DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke men’s tennis program will host an Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Kick-Off Weekend event for the fifth consecutive year in 2015, as announced by the organization Wednesday. The Blue Devils were selected one of 15 campus host sites during Wednesday’s draft for the 2015 edition of the annual event.
Duke will be the top seed in the region and will welcome No. 2 seed Memphis, No. 3 seed Clemson and No. 4 seed Wake Forest to the Sheffield Indoor Tennis Center Jan. 23-25, 2015. The winner of each campus site advances to the ITA National Team Indoor Championship Feb. 13-16, 2015 at the University of Chicago.
The Blue Devil women will join the men in hosting an ITA Kick-Off Weekend event in Durham Jan. 23-25, 2015.
This past season, Duke earned wins over Oregon and North Carolina during ITA Kick-Off Weekend to qualify for National Team Indoors for the fourth consecutive year. However, the Blue Devils were forced to withdraw from the tournament in Houston, Texas due to a severe winter storm that hit the Triangle area in mid-February.
