May, June, July
& Sept. NET Tmts.
Summer NET tournaments have a unique
situation in that we don’t want players playing in the heat of the day and
parents would like to know in advance when their kids will be playing. Listed
below is the playing schedule for all age/ability groups (specific times to be
Friday Evenings 10’s and all Novice
Saturday Mornings All Advanced groups
Saturday Evenings All
are scheduled for May 20-21, June 17-18, July 15-16 & Sept. 9-10
10 & Under:
division is for players who are 10 and younger and can serve, rally keep score (No-Ad). Players should have a
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
low compression ball helps players progress with learning the correct technique
and allows for a ball that
in their strike zone.
& 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
Novice Groups (11-18):
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.
12 & Under use the green
dot ball (like USTA tournaments) and 14’s and 18’s use the yellow
10 & Under players cannot
play in the 12 Intermediates until they have demonstrated through tournament
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.
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.
