The NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Championship is an annual men's college tennis national collegiate championship sponsored by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for teams in Division I. The tournament crowns a team, individual, and doubles champion . The first intercollegiate championship was held in 1883, 23 years before the founding of the NCAA, with Harvard's Joseph Clark taking the singles title. The same year Clark partnered to Howard Taylor to win the doubles title. The first NCAA-sponsored tournament was held in 1946.

Since 1963, the NCAA organizes separate tournaments for Division I and II. A tournament for Division III was added in 1973. However, after 1995, the NCAA no longer holds a Division II tournament. The national championship rounds are contested annually in May. In recent years, the NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Championship has been held at the same location as the men's tournament.

The current team national champions are the USC Trojans who won their 21st men's tennis national championship, their fifth in the last six years, in Athens, GA at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex hosted by the University of Georgia from May 15 to May 26, 2013. The singles championship was won by Marcos Giron of UCLA, and the doubles championship was won by the pair of Mikelis Libietis and Hunter Reese of Tennessee.

  • The NCAA was founded in 1906, but the first NCAA-sponsored championship would not be held until 1946.
  • Before 1977, individual wins counted in the team’s total points. In 1977, a dual-match, single-elimination team championship was initiated, eliminating the points system. [3]
