It’s called Oracle $$$$$


Oracle is a big sponsor of College tennis and one of the only ones.

Larry Ellison/Mark Hurd have a nice facility in Indian Wells that Ellison has plowed a lot of money into over the years. It’s understandable he’d like to have an event there.

It’s a shame to do away with an individual Indoors event, especially for colder weather teams.

But, at the same time, it is nice to have a big company that is a fan of college tennis.

I would guess they will eventually adjust the schedule to provide more of a gap. The Indoors event has typically been the same week as the Charlottesville Challenger.
