This USA Tennis Florida regional event was held at Orlando Fitness & Racquet Club on Saturday, October 23rd.  The event featured beginning players ages 12 & under from Hernando, Lee, Pinellas, Orange, and Seminole Counties.

With a focus on tennis and fun, the day began with 78 players from 10 teams playing two hours of exciting round-robin team tennis using the Ralleyball format of play.

Coaches, volunteers and parents all took an active roll either assisting on court, cheering for their teams, or snapping photos.

Following tennis and pizza lunch, the players jumped back on the courts for the chance to earn USA Tennis goodies in the Hit for Prizes event.  The on-court agenda concluded with the awards ceremony in which all players received USA Team Tennis participation medals and two deserving winners received Sportsmanship Awards – Troy Hicks of the Pinellas PAL Dominators and Ashley Coleman of the Lake Cane Spinners.

Players, coaches and parents got to cool off at a pool party, complete with DJ music.  Congratulations to all the teams and kudos to all team captains and parents that supported all the kids.
