Division Descriptions:

10 & Under:

This division is for players who are 10 and younger and can serve, rally keep score (No-Ad). Players should have a pocket for second ball to avoid delays. 10’s in USTA tournaments use the orange ball. Play is on the 60’ court using the orange low compression balls and racquets that are not longer than 25”. We have 25” racquets available for players that have ineligible racquets. The appropriate size court, racquet and and low compression ball helps players progress with learning the correct technique and allows for a ball that bounces in their strike zone.

10 & under players should not play in the 12’s until they have demonstrated through tournament play that they are
clearly too strong
for the 10’s. This is not a race to the green or yellow ball.


Novice Groups (13-18): 

Play is on full court using green dot balls. Players should be able to serve, score (No-Ad) and rally. Green dot balls enable players to progress tactically and technically before advancing to the yellow ball.

This is not a race to the yellow ball.



 Intermediate Groups:

12 & Under use the green dot ball (like USTA tournaments) and 14’s and 18’s use the yellow ball.

10 & Under players cannot play in the 12 Intermediates until they have demonstrated through tournament play that they are clearly too strong for the 10’s players. Intermediates are generally not ready for USTA tournament play, but are past the Novice stage.

High school JV players would generally be in the Intermediates.


 Advanced:

12’s and 14’s are strong enough to play in USTA tournaments.

12’s use green dot ball like they do in USTA tournaments.

High school varsity players should play in the 18 Advanced Group.

Non-Elimination Tournaments (NETS) offer players the opportunity to compete against players of their approximate age and ability within a maximum 3 hour time frame.  Non-elimination play could be round robins, compass draws or supersets. Players are grouped by age and ability. Small divisions could be mixed genders and/or combined with another appropriate division.

  • Late Arrivals: If you arrive after your scheduled check-in time, Tournament Director will consider you a Default (No-Show) and reserves right to replace you with a player from the waitlist or forfeit your entry without refund.
