Boca Pointe Country Club in Boca Raton hosted the 2007 USTA Florida 14s Team Florida Challenge from July 9-12. Forty juniors ranked in the 14 and under division were selected to play this team event.


Team Florida Challenge is designed to be a competitive tournament, yet still maintain a strong level of fun and camaraderie by grouping the players into teams. Tournament Director and USTA Florida Director of Competitive Tennis Andy Gladstone was the driving force behind the event, which also included a welcome luncheon and a dance for the participants and their families.

Coaches Matt Krajewski, Liz Levinson, Eric Kantor, and Mike Kypriss were chosen to provide instruction for the young competitive players. Each coach saw a team victory during the tournament! In the boys division, Mike Kypriss’s Devil Rays took second place while first-year Team Florida coach Liz Levinson and the Magic swept the competition 3-0 to become champions. For the girls division, it was also a 3-0 victory for Eric Kantor’s Jaguars, with Matt Krajewski’s Jaguars taking second place. The coaches also awarded trophies for sportsmanship to Will Baldock and Claire Mitchell Andrews.

 

This is the first year that Team Florida Challenge has been held at Boca Pointe Country Club. Boca Pointe Director of Tennis Angel Rodriguez was very enthusiastic about hosting the event, and he was extremely helpful throughout the tournament. Rodriguez is hopeful that Boca Pointe will continue hosting the event in the following years.
