Clemson will play its first match on Friday at 3:00 pm at the Cary Tennis Complex in Cary, NC. Virginia and BC play Thursday at 3:00 pm. 

North Carolina (24-3, 11-0 ACC) and Miami (17-4, 10-1 ACC), the only two teams to defeat Clemson in league play, earned the top two seeds. Defending NCAA Champion Duke (19-6, 7-4 ACC) was the fourth team to earn a bye.
