The Southern California Tennis Association is working with the Orange County Community Tennis Association in efforts to increase player participation in novice level adult tournaments. The Novice tournament concept has been implemented in the junior ranks with great success.
These events are designed so that entry-level players have an opportunity to participate in a tournament setting where they get to compete against a number of opponents during a set period of time (usually three hour blocks) in a round robin format. Adults cannot have an NTRP rating higher than 3.0 level (most players who have not participated in school level or league teams are fine).
Following the round robin doubles, singles may be offered if time permits. Following the tennis, all participants will have dinner provided for them. The tournament fee is $28.00 and includes balls, prizes and dinner and non-alcoholic drinks.
OCCTA will be hosting five events within the next few months at various locations throughout Orange County. Dana Hills Tennis Center will be hosting the first event this coming Saturday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., March 1, 2014.
