Each year, Long Island junior tennis players graduate from high school and head off to college to take their academics and tennis play to the next level.

Playing college tennis in the south is a lot different than playing in the north where the entire winter you are playing indoor tennis. Other aspects of location are whether you want a school in the city or in a traditional college town, close to or far from home.
