Inaugural Friendship Team Cup This Summer

New and Innovative One Day Format Boys and Girls 18’s and 16’s Divisions

The SCTA #FriendshipCup is a new, exciting, and innovative Level 3 18s and 16s team tournament where players have the ability to build their own teams with friends and fellow competitors. The event will be held June 9-10 at Nellie Gail Ranch Tennis Club in Laguna Hills.

Each team will consist of a minimum of two boys and two girls (maximum three each), and each team match will follow a World Team Tennis format (Boys Doubles, Girls Doubles, Boys Singles, Girls Singles, Mixed Doubles). The team that wins 3 of 5 matches will advance to the next round.

Six teams will be accepted into each division based on section ranking of the top two boys and top two girls on their team – along with two wild card teams to be determined by the tournament committee. All eight teams will play a compass draw format with singles bonus points awarded for finishing 1st through 7th place. Players will also earn points for each individual match won for the event played. This tournament will finish in ONE day (16s will play on one day, 18s on the other day).

This is a great warmup for Junior Sectionals and a fun opportunity for players to play with their friends!
