USTA Florida to Pilot First One-on-One Doubles Tournament

February 15, 2007 11:08 AM

USTA Florida has granted One-on-One Doubles its first adult tournament.  USTA Florida One-on-One Doubles Championships will be hosted by the Harbour Island Athletic Club & Spa in Tampa May 19 from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.  Men's 30 and 40 divisions will be the first to taste the game that is sweeping the tennis nation!    

One-on-One Doubles is a half-court, serve and volley singles competition played on a doubles court.  All points are played crosscourt with the alley included and players alternate points from the deuce court to the ad court.  The goal is to play a match; an 8 game set, 10 game set, or best 2/3 sets.  One-on-One Doubles truly develops all-court confidence for today's players.

Entry fee is $10 and $200 dollars will be awarded to the winners of each tournament with $100 given to the finalists. There will be no ranking points awarded for this historic tennis event and the tournament will run in conjunction with the $10,000 USTA Challenger tournament.

BMW is the first to include One-on-One Doubles as part of their 2007 BMW Tennis Championships on the ATP Challenger Tour, March 11-18, in Sunrise, Fl.
