US colleges with clay courts?


Many schools had clay courts up until the 90's, but it is now mandated they use hard surfaces only....Some centers used by colleges may have clay courts but dual matches aren't played on them


We have a facility that is 4 blocks away from our tennis facility with clay courts. We only use them when the guys are training for the fall clay tournament at Disney.


While I doubt few if any colleges have their own clay courts, many colleges are located near clubs with clay courts, and there are a few high level college clay tourneys. The renewed Milwaukee Tennis Classic is one of the top fall ITA tournaments as the male and female winners get a spot in the Oracle National Fall individual championships. That 64 draw tourney is held at two clubs one on clay and one on hard. The men and women alternate years on clay and hard. Also the Dick Vitale Intercollegiate Clay tournament at Lakewood Ranch in Florida in late fall attracts players from Power schools. Clay experience is important for any collegian who hopes to play Futures some day. If they dont get in college, then they have to play some clay in the summer...

Columbia used to have the world's worst clay courts in the 90's. They had four clay courts in two separate bubbles. It was dirty, dark and dingy inside those bubbles and impossible to beat them there in the 90's.
