The Nielsen Tennis Stadium, located on the grounds of the University of Wisconsin, was built in 1968 for $2 million and is now valued at nearly $9 million. The facility is a fitting tribute to Arthur C. Nielsen, founder of the television rating system. Nielsen, a UW graduate in electrical engineering, captained the Wisconsin men’s tennis team from 1916-18.

The University of Wisconsin indoor facility is currently playing host to the 2020 ITA Division I National Men’s Team Indoor Championship Presented by Oracle. Admission to watch the matches is free.

The finals will be played at noon on Monday at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium. Matches will be live-streamed, with a featured match receiving Cracked Racquets play-by-play commentary on PlaySight’s new GO technology platform.
