Players from Arizona, Northern California, San Diego and the greater LA area competed in Open, A, B and C divisions at the Lakewood Tennis Center on June 3 & 4, 2017. The two day tournament welcomed new players as well as returning experienced players. There were no easy wins in any of the divisions as many matches went to the 3rd set Tiebreak to determine the winner.

One of the unique experiences in Wheelchair Tennis is the camaraderie of the players off the court. A special thanks goes to Jeffrey Lee and Andrew Lee who arrived early on Sunday and organized all of the sport wheelchairs for the competitors.

Thanks to Steve Weaver and Cari Buck for providing a free clinic on Sunday afternoon for new players.

June marks the beginning of 10-weeks of Summer Tennis Camps at both tennis centers. The camps began on June 19th and are offered every week through August 25th. Each facility offers half-day and full-day camps. There has been a great turnout in the first couple of weeks. The camps are designed by our USPTA certified tennis pros to be very fun and challenging. Their goal is to teach or introduce the game of tennis as well as values of good sportsmanship to each and every child from the novice to the more advanced players.

El Dorado Park Tennis Center is having a fantastic turnout for Summer Tennis Camp. Coaches Mitch Bridge and Peter Smith are very inspired by its success so far. ELDO has several options for Summer Camp: High Performance Academy offers a Half-Day Day Camp from 11 AM-2:00 PM or 2:00-6 PM; Extended Day Camp from 11 AM-6 PM and, the regular Developmental + Dev All Stars Camp for ages 5-14 runs from 9 AM- Noon.

USPTA certified tennis pro Valter Paiva manages the Summer Camp program at BJK. Camps run during the summer months: June, July and August. We offer Full Day Camp and Half Day Camp Sessions. The Half Day Camps run Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM. Our Full Day Camp runs Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The Summer Tennis Camp Programs offers training sessions for the beginner to the college level player’s ages 5-18 years old.

BJK’s Tennis Pros Aba Villena & Scheraq launched their SUMMER NEXT LEVEL Junior Development program this summer. This is a great program for the Serious High School tennis player who needs to work on conditioning-footwork-strategy & tactics. The program runs Monday thru Friday from 11AM-1:00PM

All summer long, First Serve Tennis offers fun and exciting Parks & Recreation tennis classes throughout the city for every member of the family. Check out the summer Recreation book for class listings and sign up for a class today!

At BJK & ELDO, June marks the start of the summer season for Recreational World Team Tennis Junior World Team Tennis and the USTA League. All the teams are off to a great start and players are enjoying the competition and meeting new players from around the southland.

The USTA 2017 Spring Junior Team Tennis Section Championships was held at ELDO the weekend of June 3rd & 4th. Over 550 players and 70 teams from Ventura to San Diego in nine divisions within the 10, 14 & 18 & under age groups competed for a chance to represent their league in the 35th Annual Gar Glenney Cup Junior Team Tennis Championships in northern California in August.

On June 17, we were thrilled to have Tennis Legend and Hall-of-Famer Michael Chang and current coach of 9th ranked player in the world Kei Nishikori visit El Dorado Park Tennis Center for a clinic and courtside conversation and autograph session where Michael shared his thoughts of tennis and life. Everyone who attended felt honored to listen and ask questions of the Hall-of-Famer and afterwards was able to get a picture with Michael along with his autograph.

That same weekend El Dorado Park Tennis Center was selected as one of the seven host sites for the 115th Annual Southern California Junior Sectional Championships. This event is the LARGEST annual junior tennis tournament in the United States. The tournament ran from the June 17- 26 and had over 1000 competitors this year, ages 10-18, from all over Southern California.

We look forward to another busy summer and welcoming new players to both of our outstanding tennis facilities.

Please contact us for more information.  See you on the courts,

It’s the SCTA’s latest initiative to engage millennials in tennis.

The 18-39 league will be familiar to our current league players and friendly to newcomers! Captains will give out team numbers and players will register on TennisLink. Players must have a rating (computer or self-generated) and be qualified for the NTRP level of their team. This league, however, caps the player age at 39, so your opponents will be your peers. This league is also open to non-members, but every player must have a USTA number to register.  Non-members may sign-up for a membership number on TennisLink without paying a membership fee, but will be charged a higher entry fee for the league.

Both leagues will run with the same format: three lines of doubles (men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles) with two sets and a match tiebreak in lieu of a third set. Both leagues will start in early July and end in August. Each league will host its own kick-off party, so players can network and start the league with a bang.

LOS ANGELES:

  • Matches will take place on the weekends
  • Captains will be in charge of securing a home facility
  • League will employ combo rating levels (6.0, 7.0, 8.0, 9.0). This means a 7.0 team could have 3.0’s, 3.5’s, and 4.0’s all on one roster to allow larger groups of friends to play together on one team

ORANGE COUNTY:

  • Matches will take place once a week, but captains are responsible for scheduling and securing a home facility
  • League will employ straight-level teams (3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0). This means better competition against players of your same level!
  • This is a no default league, meaning we will schedule 2-3 make-up dates throughout the season where all defaulted lines can be made-up. So more opportunities for player parties….

“We are expecting a tremendous week of high-level tennis which begins on Memorial Day next week,” said Tournament Director Colleen Clery Ferrell.  “This is such a unique event because it’s a National Open Tournament and it draws so many different players from across the country. In the past, we’ve had promising junior players, college players, teaching tennis professionals, senior players and even former Davis Cup players enter this tournament. We invite fans to come out and enjoy the matches all week long.”

What Is The SCTA Doing To Improve Sportsmanship And Reduce Cheating In Adult And Youth Tennis? http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/tennis-news/what-is-the-scta-doing-to-improve-sportsmanship-and-reduce-cheating-in-adult-and-youth-tennis/ http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/tennis-news/what-is-the-scta-doing-to-improve-sportsmanship-and-reduce-cheating-in-adult-and-youth-tennis/#respond Tue, 16 May 2017 07:23:42 +0000 http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/?p=13681 Read more »]]> RALLYING WITH THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

In the competition with other activities for adult and youth participation, tennis can be an attractive option for time and resources if it is seen as a friendly and positive activity. 

Social matches between friends match that description. 

Here is how the SCTA makes Junior Team Tennis, Adult Leagues, and Adult and Youth Tournaments friendly and positive competitive activities.

We offer levels of play based upon NTRP ratings, age groups, and other skill level designations so that an individual plays a match against an opponent of similar ability.  This allows both competitors to use their mental and physical skills in a fairly matched setting.  Is this always a perfect situation?  No, and we try to make it the best we can through random draws, accurate seeding, etc.

We require USTA-certified Officials at all sanctioned events so that rules and procedures are applied correctly on the court.  The SCTA has asked the Officials to rove among the courts assigned to them so that they may head off disputes before the disagreement becomes heated.  We also ask the Officials to maintain order outside the court because spectators are not permitted to be part of a match.  If you would like information about how to become a USTA Official, please email info@scta.usta.com or call the office at 310.208.3838 and ask for Cari Buck, the Director of Marketing.

We encourage sportsmanship by acknowledging great behavior on the spot with real time awards like gift cards from Tennis Warehouse, the official sponsor of sportsmanship for the SCTA.  We also make daily and event sportsmanship awards to praise those who compete fairly.  Names and pictures of the award winners are often posted on social media, in newsletters and on webpages.

If a player believes that his/her opponent is cheating, the player should use a change over to go to the nearest Official or the Tournament Desk and ask for an Official or court monitor to come to the court to resolve the situation.  If players, parents or spectators feel that rules weren’t applied correctly or that an individual violated the rules of tennis or The Code, the SCTA Sportsmanship and Grievance Committee (SGC) decides the outcome of properly filed complaints on the official grievance form.  The SGC meets twice monthly to decide complaints.  The SGC applies consequences to individuals starting at a warning letter all the way up to suspension from tennis for up to twelve months.

It’s important that all players, parents, coaches, Tournament Directors and spectators know the rules of tennis to ensure that competition is fair and civil.  Competing is hard enough without the handicap of not knowing the rules.  One resource that all players should have is called Friend at Court.  It’s available online or in a printed version.  Please call the SCTA office at 310.208.3838 and we can mail you a copy for $10 which includes postage and handling or look online at Amazon.com for the 2017 version.  The other resource you should have is Rules of Tennis 2017 and The Code.  That booklet is also available from the SCTA office for $5 or online.

Tennis competes with all other activities for participants and their time and financial resources.  If we have a product that is seen as beneficial physically, mentally and socially, then tennis will have a secure future.  The SCTA is helping make that future bright by focusing on better sportsmanship and more fair play.  Please let me know how you think we are doing.  Call 310.208.3339 or email bhunt@scta.usta.com.  Cheers!

Bruce A. Hunt – Executive Director

The Ojai: 117 Years of SoCal’s Best & Brightest http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/tennis-news/the-ojai-117-years-of-socals-best-brightest/ http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/tennis-news/the-ojai-117-years-of-socals-best-brightest/#respond Wed, 26 Apr 2017 23:39:35 +0000 http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/?p=13300 Read more »]]>  

Nestled in a quaint valley town east of Ventura, Ojai is populated by less than 8000 residents year ‘round. But for one week in May, the town plays host to the oldest tennis tournament west of the Mississippi, attracting thousands of athletes and visitors alike for what is aptly and simply named “The Ojai.”

 

A career pinnacle of many southern California tennis players and beyond (athletes this year come from British Columbia, Nevada, Hong Kong, and Texas, among others), success at the Ojai is no small feat. The tournament receives more than 100 applications annually from the best players throughout the region, filling just 32 spots in highly competitive Open draws.

This year marks the 117th playing of The Ojai, and despite its lengthy history, the tournament continues to modernize and evolve. Each spring, the community (and all of Ventura County) invest their time and effort to create this amazing event. With more than 400 volunteers and 112 active courts, world class facilities and creative fundraising initiatives, The Ojai sets the stage for competitive junior, adult, and collegiate tournaments.

Perhaps the most anticipated draw of the tournament will be a battle of PAC-12 schools in team competition, the first year for Pac-12 women in team format. With NCAA berths on the line, a strong showing for collegiate players is essential at such a high profile event. Stanford, UCLA, and California are among the top seeds.

“It’s a whole different level of intensity,” according to Jeff Jenkins, one of numerous tournament directors. “This will up the level for them.”

Players gearing up at Ojai Valley Tennis Club.

Not to be outdone, “The Ojai” boasts some of the highest ranking players at the Junior level. CIF competition increase to draws of 64 as young players represent their schools. Locals will keep an eye on Scout Mathews, an Ojai native and 5-star recruit according to TennisRecruiting.com. Mathews, described by tournament director Craig Fugle as “a prodigy-type player,” is seeded fourth in Girls 16s.

Bystanders should expect great tennis from juniors, college players, and adults alike. But there’s plenty to look forward to off the court as well. New electronic scoreboards will be in place, with a master scoreboard to be added next year. A PAC-12 banquet and scholarship barbeque (featuring honorary guest Rod Laver) will be headlining attractions. And this year, for the first time, all champions will be crowned at Libbey Park on Sunday, when all division finals are played at the same location.  

For the 117th time, the tennis community in Ojai hopes that a future champion will launch a storybook career on their home courts. Household names like Bill Tilden, Arthur Ashe, Billie Jean King, Jimmy Connors, Tracy Austin, and Pete Sampras are among world ranked players who one competed at Ojai.

The question remains, who is the next tennis superstar to pass through the valley? Amazingly, the chances are pretty good that a future US Open champion, Davis Cup captain, or US Olympian is warming up on a back court at Ojai Valley Tennis Club at this very moment…

Perennial Sportsmanship Winners Finish 2nd at TOC Nationals http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/tennis-news/perennial-sportsmanship-winners-finish-2nd-at-toc-nationals/ http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/tennis-news/perennial-sportsmanship-winners-finish-2nd-at-toc-nationals/#respond Mon, 24 Apr 2017 07:56:09 +0000 http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/?p=13157 Read more »]]> The UC Irvine Club Tennis team is one of the section’s longest standing Tennis On Campus programs. The Anteaters have proven to be a force to be reckoned with in competition, but what they are really known for is their excellent sportsmanship on and off the court.

They’ve amassed numerous sportsmanship awards at the Section Championship, more at the Spring Invitational, and even more at the National Championship through the years. In 2017, their story certainly shows a team with the same sincerity we are all used to, but it also takes them to the finals of the Tennis On Campus National Championship.

“I did not know what to expect heading into Nationals. I knew that any of these 64 teams had a chance to win,” UCI Team Captain, Tommy Luu, said of the experience. It was a common theme among team members. Many knew they had a strong team, but had no expectation to be in the final battle for the title.

The top teams from all over the U.S. made their way to the USTA’s new National Campus in Orlando this April– all fighting to be in this very position.

“We didn’t expect to go so far,” senior Melissa Huang said. “We didn’t realize our potential. I think it really hit us when we got into the top four that we had a chance at winning the tournament.”

And how would they have ever known? The team was young and inexperienced at this level. They finished third at the 2017 Southern California Section Championship, and even missed out on Nationals in 2016 after a disappointing run at Sectionals last year.

“I was the only one on UCI’s 2015 Nationals team that returned for 2017, so it was pretty difficult to gauge how we would perform against the other schools,” Co-Captain Gabe Cupino said.

Apparently, it was only the coach who knew what to expect from this group.

“I was confident we had a team that could win at Nationals,” long-time coach, Iris Fonseca, said after their stellar run. “My goal coming into the tournament was winning the title. At minimum, I wanted to finish as one of the top four schools.”

The road to the finals was not easy. Seeded second in their pool, the Anteaters had to play University of Virginia, University of Tennessee, and Rice University. UVA was the team to beat, seeded at number one in Pool I. First up for the Anteaters was University of Tennessee. The team looked shaky, dropping a couple sets, but finishing strong with a 23-15 win. Next, an easy-breezy match versus Rice University, ending 30-9. Last up, was UVA. The Cavaliers are known for their deep runs into the Gold Bracket at Nationals, but UCI was able to push the team into the Silver Bracket with a 30-15 win in the final round of pool play.

“My mentality getting into the Gold Draw was there’s no such thing as an easy match,” Luu said. “Everyone in Gold Draw had the capability to win at Nationals and I knew we just had to believe in each other and keep fighting for every set, every point, every shot.”

In the first round of the Gold Bracket, UCI beat UPenn handedly. In the quarters, they faced Georgia and looked strong out of the gates. The Anteaters were up big heading into mixed and looked to have everything under control at 4-0, but dropped six quick games and lost the mixed doubles set. The match then went into Overtime, but the Eaters were able to stop the bleeding and won the first game of OT, ending the match after a minor hiccup.

Into the semifinals they went with bellies full of Korean barbeque from the night previous and a tough match ahead of them. Minnesota was primed and ready for the 9 a.m. match on Saturday. The Gophers’ men’s doubles team laid out a 6-1 win over the Anteaters and it didn’t look like the girls weren’t fairing much better. UCI was down 1-4 in women’s doubles when the team subbed in exchange student Yoshi Takashimizu, which put the brakes on Minnesota’s momentum and turned the set around completely. UCI won women’s doubles 6-4.

Heading into mixed doubles, Minnesota had a one-game lead. It was up to the mixed doubles team of Cupino and Huang to come up with the upset.

“During the mixed set, I played with a lot of energy because we needed to win at least 6-4 to win the match without playing a supertiebreak,” Cupino recalled of the match. “I was trying to keep us pumped up because I knew the moment the other team gained momentum, we could lose the set and ultimately lose the match.”

Cupino and Huang focused on their consistency through their entire set and were able to pull through with a 6-3 win, beating Minnesota 23-21 and securing their spot in the finals.

They waited for the winner of the other semifinal match, either UCLA or Michigan. The Bruins were desperately trying to claw their way back into the match with a 6-1 win in men’s singles. Ultimately though, the Bruins fell and the final match was decided. The Anteaters would face a feisty team from University of Michigan in the finals.

The teams had a few hours to kill before the big show. UCI went through pre-match interviews with the USTA’s video crew and got a briefing on the night’s run of show. The team refueled at Olive Garden and went back to the hotel to decompress with a rousing game of “Exploding Kittens,” a card game that helped keep the anxiety at bay while they waited for the evening’s match.

Before they knew it, they were back at the National Campus, hearing their names announced to a buzzing crowd of students, friends and family, and USTA staff. The Anteaters were a clear fan favorite. Once again, the team’s unparalleled sportsmanship paid off. It was clear UC Irvine had garnered the support of teams throughout the tournament – even the teams they had beaten.

“There are no words to describe the feeling from the energy and support the fans gave us,” Luu said. “I knew we had made some friends from the other schools but I did not expect almost everyone to be on our side cheering us on.”

It’s not every day that a college student can say they played in an event of this magnitude. Students from the 64 teams gathered around one court to watch these two teams battle. They cheered. They groaned. They rallied behind their friends, teammates, and new TOC comrades. The match was also streamed live online with color commentary from Cici Bellis, so the event reached thousands of people across the country as it happened.

As the match got underway, Michigan took charge immediately, winning women’s doubles 6-2. Up next was Takashimizu for women’s singles and it turned out she had a bit of a cult following herself. The crowd chanted her name as she warmed up.

“YO-SHI, YO-SHI, YO-SHI.”

“It was so much fun and I will never forget that moment,” she said. “I can’t thank the people enough for cheering for me and supporting us in every way.”

Takashimizu found herself up 5-2 in the singles set, but her Wolverine opponent locked into the match and made an incredible comeback, taking the set 6-5.

Next up, men’s doubles: Cupino and Luu. The two team captains got off to a slow start and found themselves in a 0-2 deficit. They fired back, however, and served up six straight games and a 6-2 win, keeping the Anteaters in the match.

“I had never played in that kind of atmosphere, in front of so many people,” Luu said. “At first, I was so nervous. I was shanking every ball and missing volleys in the warm up. But through the course of the set, the crowd’s energy inspired me to keep fighting.”

Freshman Andy Francis stepped onto the court for men’s singles. With the crowd behind him, he pulled out a 6-4 victory. The Anteaters were up one game going into mixed doubles. They just needed to win the set to win the title.

UCLA Cheers for UCI in Championship Final

The crowd erupted in excitement to see Takashimizu take the court with Cupino. The “Yo-Shi” chants filled the stadium once again as the duo warmed up. However, the Anteaters needed more than the crowd’s support for this set. Michigan flew into the final set with a vengeance, and stole the win from the Anteaters with a 6-1 victory in mixed doubles.

Even in defeat, UC Irvine was thankful for the experience and proud of what they accomplished.

“It was a surreal experience,” Cupino said. “I felt like I had to give it my all for everyone who was watching. To hear so much clapping and screaming after winning a point was something I have never experienced in my life. It is an experience I will always hold close to my heart.”

“This tournament has truly been the highlight of my coaching career at UCI,” Fonseca admitted. “I could not have asked for a better team to coach and represent UCI and Southern California at Nationals.”

Five other Southern California teams competed at the National Championship this year. UCLA finished third over Minnesota, putting two SoCal teams in the top three in the country. Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, the Section Championship winner, also competed in the Gold Draw.

UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, and USC all played in the Silver Draw after tough pool play matches.

All Southern California teams were present for that final match.

“Watching a SoCal team in the final was an amazing experience,” UCSB Senior Daniel Barrington said. “To see players out there that we have grown close with over the past few years get an opportunity to battle on what is perhaps the biggest stage any of us will ever get to play on was truly humbling and so much fun.”

“We all felt a companionship with UCI and wanted them to win so badly,” Gaucho Club President Lincoln Howarth said. “When they lost, a lot of us described the feeling as if we had lost as well. Since we were all coming from the same section, it felt like a fight that we were all in together. Watching UCI do so well and make it to the finals was like watching a close friend succeed.”

TOC SoCal Schools After the Final

You can’t help but support a team like UC Irvine. They make friends everywhere they go. The SoCal teams know this, but now the nation knows it.

In true UCI fashion, when asked to reflect on the experience, the Anteaters all expressed their gratitude.

“I just want to thank everyone involved with this event, especially the USTA,” Luu said. “Thanks for giving students a chance to play competitively and experience it all through such an amazing event and team scenario.”
