this Friday and Saturday. We will have two 12 and under matches on
Friday evening at 6:30 at Georgetown Country Club. All other
matches will be on Saturday, July 21.
Due to warm temperatures, I have split our divisions and created
smaller draws to ensure that no one plays more than 3 matches per
day. I also created a 16s division for kids ages 15 and 16. If you
registered your 15/16 year old in 18s, you can find their draw
information now in one of the 16s divisions. Points towards
end-of-year standings will be awarded to players in all draws in
their respective divisions, this means that 16s will receive points
in the 18s division.
All 10 and under matches will take place at Georgetown Country Club
(1500 Country Club Road). 10 and under kids will play 2 sets (no-ad
scoring) to 4 games, with at 7 point tie-break in case they split
sets. I will have court monitors assisting with scoring in case of
12 and under matches will take place at Georgetown Country Club
(1500 Country Club Road).
14s, 16s, and 18s will be played at Georgetown East View High
School Patriot Tennis Center (4490 East University).
All 12s, 14s, and 18s matches will play 8-game no-ad pro sets with
a 7 point tie break at 8-8.
Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and Consolation in each
