If you're a high school junior or senior looking to play tennis in college, then you should sign up for USTA Eastern’s 24th Annual College Showcase Day.

The Showcase Day is being held this Sunday, November 7, 2010 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York.

The event is designed to reach the thousands of students who are not recruited by the top college tennis teams but want to play tennis after graduation. 

This year, high school juniors will get a chance to participate in drills, attend special workshops and watch some of the top college players in the country compete at the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships at the National Tennis Center.

High school seniors will play in a round robin tournament, have lunch with college coaches and attend a College Showcase. 

It's truly a great chance to learn about the wide range of opportunities to play college tennis. 

Last year, more than 200 students and parents attended the Showcase, along with coaches from more than 45 colleges, including Swarthmore College, University of Scranton and Smith College.

This year, a wide range of colleges have already signed up, including Bucknell University, University of Rochester and Manhattanville College.
