From Texas.usta.com… but I can do that.
Over the next month, various schools across the state will be playing host to the 2010 USTA/ITA Regional Championships. These events are a great opportunity to expose younger players, not only to some of the up and coming players at the collegiate level, but also expose these players to the college atmosphere.
Collegiate tennis has a great history in the state of Texas. Not only have there been great teams from the state, but many great events have been hosted in Texas as well.
The USTA/ITA Regional Championships are a series of tournaments where players compete individually for the chance to compete at the national level.
The ITA Regional Championships, currently sponsored by the USTA, date back to 1981 and for nearly two decades were also known as the Rolex Regional Championships.
The Small College (NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College) singles and doubles champions from the USTA/ITA Regional Championships will advance to the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships, held October 14-17 at the Copeland-Cox Tennis Center in Mobile, Alabama. The USTA/ITA National Small College Championships are comprised of the eight regional champions (and/or at-large selections) from NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community Colleges.

The singles and doubles champions from the NCAA Division I USTA/ITA Regional Championships will advance to the 2010 USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, taking place November 4-7, at the new indoor facilities at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, located in Flushing, New York. Columbia University will serve as the tournament host.
The most unique element of the USTA/ITA Intercollegiate Championships program is the fact that all levels of varsity college tennis (NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College) are competing in one comprehensive event, and any ITA varsity student-athlete has the opportunity to play and win at the prestigious USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
