    No-Ad rule change revisited

    It has now been a few years since college tennis changed the format to no-ad and shortened doubles. Looking back over the time period, what has been the impact of it in your opinion?

    NCAA 2015-2016 General Talk

Some cool stuff about this event is that the players of each of the 16 teams (8 men and 8 women) stay at host families in a nice area of Montgomery as opposed to a...
