NEW YORK –  Sixteen of the top Division I Men’s tennis teams are set to meet at the 2024 ITA National Team Indoor Championships, taking place Feb. 16-19 at two sites in New York, N.Y.

4-seed Virginia (6-3) opens play against 13-seed Duke (6-2) on Friday at 9 a.m. at the Philip & Cheryl Milstein Family Tennis Center at host Columbia University.

The ITA Division I Men’s National Team Indoor Championship is a National Championship that welcomes the top teams from across the country to battle it out on a national stage. Now in its 49th year, the ITA Division I Men’s Indoor Championship is widely considered one of the most storied events in all of college tennis.

Besides the host, teams qualify for the ITA Division I Men’s National Team Indoor Championships through the ITA Kickoff Weekend which puts the top 60 teams in competition across 15 regional host sites around the country.

Cracked Racquets will once again provide coverage of this event through a YouTube stream that will incorporate all main-draw matches taking place over all four days of play. Broadcasts will begin with the first match Friday morning and will continue through the championship match on Monday.

As a single-elimination tournament, teams will play one match each day with the Championship Match being played on Monday, February 19, at 12 p.m. All teams are guaranteed to play at least three matches over the weekend through either the main or consolation draw.

The Cavaliers have won six ITA National Team Indoor Championships, including four straight from 2008 to 2011 and most recently in 2017 when the tournament was held in Charlottesville. Only Stanford (12) and UCLA (7) have won more team indoor titles.

Virginia and Duke met in the NCAA Round of 16 last season with UVA advancing with a 4-0 victory against the Blue Devils. Virginia also faced Duke in the 2023 ACC Championship match with the Cavaliers winning 4-1.

The winner of the Virginia/Duke match will advance to face either 5-seed Tennessee or 12-seed USC on Saturday at 9 a.m. in the quarterfinals.
