PLEASE LET NANCY KNOW IF YOUR ATHLETE PLANS TO PARTICIPATE OR IF YOU CAN VOLUNTEER.

Typically competition begins around 9 AM so arrival is about 8:30 AM, but that will be tailored to the actual schedule that comes out.  The Green Division is played outdoors and is usually completed by noon with awards following.  The other events are played inside and are usually finished by mid-afternoon.  This is all dependent on the number of participants.  Please keep your day open so that you can adapt to any changes.  The biggest factor is the weather.  If we all have to come inside then you can plan on a longer day.

Uniform: bright yellow dri-fit Tennis Buddies shirt with white or black skirt/shorts (If possible, shorts with pockets)

tennis shoes that will not mark the courts (NO fashion shoes!!!)

Divisions:

Green Division:  This is played on a smaller court with a low compression ball.  An athlete will be paired with a volunteer player for each match.  They are allowed more than one bounce as these are athletes that are just learning or need more time to keep the ball in play.  They may play just this event.

 

Unified Doubles: This event is played on a full court with an athlete paired with a volunteer vs an athlete and a volunteer.  They are allowed one bounce and play regulation tennis rules. They may play just this event.

 

Doubles:  This event is two athletes vs two athletes.  They will play regulation tennis.  May also play singles if desired.

 

Singles: This event is athlete vs athletes.  They will play regulation tennis.
