Who's Turning Pro... Who's Going To College...

updated 12/22/03-Final Update On This Page
Click Here For The 2004 Status Reports

The majority of the world does not distinguish athletes as professional or amateur. That is not the case in the United States. Though the USTA has recently passed a "Call Item" to allow professional players 18 and under to compete in USTA Super National events, the NCAA still has very specific guidelines on amateur status.

The purpose of the College And Junior Tennis Status Report is to help everyone keep up with who's turning pro and who's signed to attend a specific college. Information on this page is updated as soon as we receive it.
