One-On-One Doubles Rocks Saddlebrook Juniors

May 7, 2008 10:24 AM

Saddlebrook Academy's Juniors were treated to an afternoon of Rock N' Roll Tennis with a USTA Florida sanctioned, One-On-One Doubles Tournament. The tournament, played April 25, featured Saddlebrook Academy's finest juniors competing in the Half-Court, Serve-and-Volley Singles Game.

One-On-One Doubles tournaments are played in 3 hours and are played in the non-elimination format of play. With full draws of 16, each junior was guaranteed four sets each. Each set was first to 5 games with a tie-breaker at 4-all.
The new game of Tennis was played to a variety of rock and blues recordings over the resort's stereo system. The juniors were excited to compete for  One-On-One Doubles ranking points.

"One-On-One Doubles is a great game and concept. It improved our players' all-court game and volleys in a matter of 3 hours! We won some Superseries Doubles tournaments just two days later", stated Jim Royalty, Tournament Coordinator, Saddlebrook Academy.
