Men’s Dropped Programs

I’ve compiled this list from a few different places including a lot of my own research but if there is anything to add/subtract let me know. As of 9/11/2020 there are 357 Division I schools of which 244 offer men’s tennis while 113 do not. The table below has the 113 schools that do not offer men’s tennis – column on the left is in chronological order of when the program was dropped while the column on the right is listed in alphabetical order. There are a few programs that I couldn’t find a date of when the program was dropped so I’ve listed them as NA.

UConn, George Washington, La Salle, Fresno State, Iowa, and Minnesota have already made the decision to drop men’s tennis at the end of 2021 – they are added in the table but I did not include them in the number in the first paragraph since they are still going to play this upcoming season (if there is a season).
