Regulations and General Information

THE INAUGURAL CHILDREN’S CUP INTERNATIONAL TENNIS TEAM EVENT for boys and girls 12-14 & under will be held on Dec. 8-12, 2008, at the Pembroke Pines Racquet Club in Pembroke Pines, Fla. Founded by Pierre Arnold and Gustavo Granitto, the event is an effort to to increase the opportunities for competition between the time span during the Eddie Herr and Junior Orange Bowl junior events in South Florida.

“The event will be making a donation to the USTA Florida Foundation,” said Arnold, who added they are also seeking a children’s cancer charity partner. The unique team event will allow on-court coaching under ITF/USTA team event regulations, with the format a draw of 16 teams with feed-in consolation. Singles matches will be best two of three sets with a tiebreak deciding the third set. Each team can have up to four players, two in singles and a doubles team.

“When we wondered about this project, we discussed with locals and international coaches, receiving a great feedback about this initiative,” Arnold said.  “Now, we are committed in making Children’s Cup an event where the players will feel proud to be part of it forever.”

Entry deadline for teams is Nov. 3, and for more info you can contact Pierre Arnold via e-mail at pierrearnoldtennis@yahoo.com, or by phone at (954) 435-6590.
