    Looking at NCAA tennis results online.... the amount of tennis matches played between colleges vary vastly. Some college teams are competing more than 30 matches in the year, while others barely make 10 matches.

    Why such a low match play?

    Is this just plain apathy?
    Lack of players committing to the team?
    Lack of funds to travel?

    Or is there something obvious I'm missing. It's hard from this side of the pond to understand what's going on!

    Lack of funds, then competition. Not all colleges have competitors that are close by. I played in Kansas and we had to travel all over to find competition. It made for a long semester during the season.

    Thanks Tennispro

    So that's it then ...

    Money and isolated geography.

    Interesting I'd never guessed this ... the whole of the UK will fit into Texas! LOL
