A&M Women’s Tennis Leads Nation in Attendance

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION -- Texas A&M leads the nation in attendance at women’s tennis matches for the second consecutive month, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced today.

The Aggies (11-6, 7-1 Big 12) have drawn 3,389 fans in eight home matches played through March. Seven of the matches were played at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center, and rain forced the Aggies to play one match at the City of Bryan Tennis Center.

In addition, A&M has recorded four of the top five single match totals for a season average of 424 per month. The Aggies lead second-place Michigan in average attendance by nearly 250.

A&M led the nation with a 576 average attendance in 2008, the first year the ITA conducted the ITA Attendance Race.

The Aggies, 8-2 in home matches this season, are at No. 23 Michigan and No. 3 Notre Dame, Thursday and Saturday, respectively, before closing out the regular season home schedule Wednesday, April 15 against No. 4 Baylor.
