Cary Tennis Park to Become New Home for the ITA Women’s All-American Championships

Sep 27, 2022

The ITA announced today that an agreement has been reached with the Town of Cary, North Carolina, that will make Cary Tennis Park the new home of the prestigious ITA Women’s All-American Championships. The agreement is for three years, beginning in the fall of 2022 and running through 2024.

Under the agreement, Duke University, the University of North Carolina, and North Carolina State University will serve as host institutions and provide hosting support to Cary and Cary Tennis Park.  

The 2022 ITA Women’s All-American will see a return to the hard courts October 1-9, 2022 after spending the previous year on clay. The event will also see a return to qualifying singles and doubles rounds as well as pre-qualifying singles and doubles rounds. Singles draws sizes will be 96 for pre-qualifying, 64 for qualifying, and 32 for the main draw. Doubles draws sizes will include a 32 for pre-qualifying, 48 for qualifying, and a 32 for the main draw. The entire nine-day event will be played outdoors at the Cary Tennis Park. In the event of inclement weather, the Cary Tennis Park covered courts will be used along with a combination of the Duke, UNC, and NC State indoor facilities if necessary. As part of the agreement, live scoring and live streaming will also be provided throughout the event. 

The Cary Tennis Park opened in 2002 and contains 25 outdoor, lighted hard courts, including a center court and ample spectator seating. The facility has seen numerous improvements over the years including the addition of seven covered courts in 2017. Cary Tennis Park is currently the home to many high-profile junior, collegiate, and professional events including the annual Atlantic Tire Championships. In 2019, the facility received the USTA’s “Featured Facility” award, which recognized excellence in the construction and/or renovation of tennis facilities throughout the country.
