JTT-Sun-2This Wednesday is the registration deadline for the USTA Florida Team Tennis Challenge, presented by Wilson Racquet Sports, and hosted by the Midtown Athletic Club in Weston on April 12-13, 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 10-under Advanced, 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 April 2, 2014. To register go to http://ustaflorida.com/teamtennischallenges.

"Our new Team Tennis Challenges are a way to meet the demands and time constraints of parents and kids today," said USTA Florida Associate Executive Director Andy McFarland. "They keep kids active in tennis and provide them an opportunity to play on a team with their friends. The flexibility these events provide allows for more children to participate on a team in a shorter time period."

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.
