Feb. 5 Deadline for Kids Team Tennis Challenge in Orlando

January 8, 2014 08:06 AM
JTT-Sun-2Kids love playing on teams, from junior team tennis to middle school tennis to high school. Now the new USTA Florida Regional Team Tennis Challenge is bringing recreational team play to Orlando-area children.

USTA Florida's Team Tennis Challenge, presented by Wilson Racquet Sports, will be hosted by the Lake Cane Tennis Center in Orlando on Feb. 15-16, 2014.

The two-day tournament will host teams with a minimum of two boys and two girls, and no more than eight players per team. Age divisions include 12-under, 14-under, and 18-under, with three skill divisions: novice, intermediate and advanced.

These "BYOT" (bring your own team) events do not require previous team tennis league participation. Both USTA members and non-members can participate, with USTA members receiving a $10 discount on registration. Team registration closes on Feb. 5, 2014. To register go to http://ustaflorida.com/teamtennischallenges.

"We have seen consistent demand across Florida for more open, recreational formats of play," said USTA Florida Associate Executive Director Andy McFarland. "The new USTA Florida Team Tennis Challenges offer fewer restrictions, allowing more teams to participate."

USTA Florida strongly encourages coaches to register teams early. "The partnership with USTA Florida Team Tennis Challenges is a great fit for Wilson Racquet Sports and our shared vision to attract more youth participation," said Erika Offerdahl, promotions manager for Wilson Racquet Sports.

Coaches and players can also connect with USTA Florida via Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #BYOTeamTennis.
