The University of Georgia men’s tennis team will host South Florida, Virginia Tech and VCU for the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Kick-Off Weekend on Jan. 30-31, 2022.
The selections were made during Thursday’s ITA Kick-Off draft that took place virtually. Georgia will serve as a dual-gender host with the women set to welcome Iowa, Mississippi State and North Florida. The 15 men’s programs hosting ITA Kick-Off Weekend events were designated sites in order of their year-end 2021 ITA team ranking.
No. 1 seed Georgia will play No. 4 seed VCU the first day. The winner/loser of that contest will matchup with the winner/loser of the South Florida versus Virginia Tech match.
The teams will compete for one of 16 spots in the 2022 ITA National Men’s Indoor Championship, which takes place Feb. 18-22 in Seattle, Washington. The Bulldogs have won the ITA national indoor title on two occasions, doing so in 2006 and 2007.
This past year’s Georgia team posted a 17-7 overall record and finished ranked No. 9 nationally. The Bulldogs won 11 of their last 14 matches, including a 4-3 victory against No. 6 North Carolina in the NCAA Round of 16.
