A rainy Sunday dampened the courts but not the spirits at the USTA Junior Team Tennis Fall Sectional Tournament, December 10-11 at the Florida Tennis Center in Daytona Beach.  Fifty-five teams and over 350 kids from all parts of Florida battled each other in a competitive but fun atmosphere.  Sunday’s rain shortened the tournament to one day and winners were selected by their game winning percentage after one day of play.

Trophies were awarded to the champions and finalists in each age group in the Intermediate division.  All players in the Novice Divisions received a participation medal.  Congratulations to the following teams:
