We're excited to have you join us for our last Challenger of the season. Get ready for a lot of tennis over two days! Saturday will be all singles round robin pool play, which leads into Sunday's playoff rounds for all players. All players need to keep your schedules open for singles all day Saturday and Sunday from 8am-2pm. Doubles will start at the conclusion of all singles playoffs on Sunday. All doubles players should be ready to play no earlier than noon, but available to play the rest of the day on Sunday.
We're excited to welcome you to the RMTC Fall Junior Challenger!
Playoff Draws Posted (Boys & Girls 10 & Under at RMTC pro shop side; all other age groups and doubles at CU South)
Good Evening and welcome to the RMTC Fall Jr. Challenger Playoffs!
All playoff draws are now posted. Sorry for the delay in working through all the round robin draws that flow then into playoffs for all players. Unfortunately, as this tournament format is outside the mainstream of tournament opportunities across the country, there is no direct system through the USTA online software that allows this to be an easy process. Therefore, we must do it "by hand," which can take some time.
In any case, as the headline above indicates, Boys 10 & Under singles playoffs will be at RMTC on the pro shop side as well as the continuation of Girls 10 & Under singles. All players in Boys & Girls 10s should check in with Coach Steve at the RMTC Pro shop. All other age group singles playoffs and Boys 14 & under doubles will be held at CU South.
We do have a lot of tennis yet to play tomorrow, and it looks like doubles will start around 2 or 3 pm depending, of course, on how efficiently we move through singles playoffs.
Please contact me directly at 303-304-6322 if you have any questions.
Thank you all parents and coaches for your fantastic support of this event! Coach Steve and I and all of us at RMTC, truly appreciate everyone's supportive mindset as we work together to provide a great opportunity for all our kids to continue to develop their competitive skills.
Great job also to all the players for your sportsmanship, hard work, and positive mindset in going after continuing to develop your competitive skills working so well with each other and with all your adult supporters (tournament staff, coaches, parents and grandparents!) I am delighted to see you all embrace the idea that you help each other become better players when you have the opportunity to compete together! Let's keep it up tomorrow as you compete in the playoffs!
See you at the courts!
All the best,
Director of Tennis
Rocky Mountain Tennis Center - Boulder
All draws will utilize Round Robin pool formats that lead to non-elimination playoff advancement for all players regardless of results where there are 6 players or more. We plan to complete all round robin play on Saturday throughout the day and then, for larger draws, playoffs will be played Sunday morning at RMTC-Boulder. All players should plan to be available for matches throughout the day on Saturday, as well as playoff matches for larger draws on Sunday morning as scheduled.
The purpose of this format is to provide players with an equal amount of competitive experiences to help promote their player development.
