November 14, 2006 02:14 PM

South Florida tennis players – sign up to play in a local doubles tournament Dec. 1-3 and support the Voices for Children Foundation.

The inaugural Priyanka Cup will kick off with a local doubles tennis tournament.  Tennis enthusiasts of all levels are encouraged to sign up to compete and support this local event.  Doubles teams should register together and if you do not have a doubles partner, local pros will match you up with one.

Three prestigious tennis venues in South Florida—The Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne, Brickell Tennis Club and The Grove Isle Hotel & Spa—will host this year’s events.

The Open Division will consist of top players vying for a 3-day/2-night stay at the Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne or the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch, (winner to choose!)  Round-robin participants at each venue will compete for a trophy, pride and fun.

The Open Division Tournament, for top-level of competitors, will have a knockout format with all teams guaranteed two matches.  Hosted at the Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne Tennis Garden, this tournament will take place Friday, Dec. 1 through Sunday, Dec. 3.

The men’s and women’s doubles round-robin tournament on Dec. 2 will take place at two venues; the draw will be based on USTA rating.  The Brickell Tennis Club and The Grove Isle Hotel & Spa will host the tournament.  * Teams will be notified in advance of their tournament location.

The mixed doubles tournament, also a round-robin format, is on Sunday, Dec. 3, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Grove Isle Hotel & Spa.
