Does anyone know why this University (FDU) has so many English players on its men's tennis roster? Just curious.

FDU has a campus in England so I imagine their people there shuttle some players to the New Jersey campus.

(note: I grew up about 5 miles from the Fairleigh Dickinson (FDU) campus in Hackensack, NJ, the place was better known as Fairly Ridiculous for its meager academic reputation.)

Is it good for tennis? I can see that there is an attraction in being close to NYC.

I practice on the FDU courts for 10 years and there are a lot of Brits. Not sure why. It's 5 miles from the George Washington Br, nice location. Good courts too, once saw Catalina Castano of Columbia practice there the week before US Open, she was in the main draw too. Big Colombian contingent in Hackensack. The courts and campus is in Teaneck.
