NEW FOR 2011 AND BG10's IN THE MIDWEST
All BG10 Level 6 Challengers will play on a regulation size
tennis court but will be using the Green Ball. In addition, the
scoring format will always be two out of three sets with a Match
Tiebreak (superbreaker) in lieu of the third set. The Green Ball is
25 % slower and lower bouncing than the Yellow Ball. This helps
players to continue to develop good technique, movement, as well as
implement advanced tactics. Both team and individual events are
played. The USTA/Midwest Section recommends this stage for training
and it is required in all Level 1-6 tournaments in the USTA/Midwest
Section Points Per Round Program. To learn more
