Team points are scored per the number of games won from singles, doubles and mixed doubles. The team with the most games at the end of the round robin play wins the Pacific Cup!
TRAVEL, MEALS & HOUSING
USTA NorCal will cover airfare and transportation for all the players. All players on the team will be given housing to stay with local tennis families in/around Beaverton, Oregon. Players will be housed in pairs of two or four with his/her teammate(s). The host site will cover some meals and players will need to pay for some of their meals as well.
TEAM COACH & MANAGER
USTA NorCal will select and send one team coach for the event. Team coaches may coach players at specific times during matches. Players’ personal coaches and parents may attend the event but are NOT permitted to coach. A team manager will also be traveling with the team to assist the coach with logistics and to chaperone the players.
Players will not receive ranking points for matches in this event. This is a fun event to celebrate the hard work and achievements that our top NorCal players have put in all year long for their results and rankings.
