It’s 7 p.m. (ET) and we just arrived to the indoor site and it looks like the NCAA committee will give both teams 30 minutes to warm up. There are eight courts available at the facility. Three courts will be used first for doubles and then the remaining for singles. The University of Georgia media relations office is setup for live scoring here, so kudos to their hardwork and efforts today.
We certainly understand the man hours put in by the UGA support staff and on-site volunteers to host the NCAA Tennis Championships, especially when the event gets delayed due to weather, etc. It’s definitely an undertaking and one of the longest commitments of any Division I varsity sport starting with the team championship and then the individual championship over a two-week period.
Let me just tell you, I’ve had many people come up to me today to tell me how great of a job we do at Texas A&M of hosting. They also kidded around with me that it must be nice to be able to enjoy the match and leave at my leisure LOL Gig ‘Em Aggies!
