Match Play Days


  


What are Match Play Days?

 

Match Play Days are a great way for kids ages 5 - 17 to play tennis in a fun, non-threatening, non-eliminating, competitive environment. It is a wonderful way for our players to get in more match play experience and get ready for upcoming tournaments. Match Play Days are organized, individual match-play, focusing on both singles and doubles (single gender doubles and mixed doubles). 

 

Players participate at their level with opponents of similar skills. These low key competitions are organized in fomats that allow children to play again and again, whether they win or lose. Matches are played on Friday afternoons.

 

Format: 8 & Under Red Ball - Two out of three short sets to 7 points. Rotate server after every two points, switch ends of the court after each set. 10 & Under Orange Ball - Two out of three short sets to 4 games, tie-breaker at 3-3, 10pt tie breaker in lieu of 3rd set. No-ad scoring 12 & Under Green Ball and Yellow Ball - Two out of three short sets to 4 games, tie-breaker at 3-3, 10pt tie breaker in lieu of 3rd set. No-ad scoring 14/18 Under Advanced Yellow Ball - Two sets to six games, tie-breaker at 5-5. 10pt tie breaker in lieu of 3rd set.  No-ad scoring.

 

Players will play three singles matches and three doubles matches through out the season and are guaranteed one match each week. (For players who do not attend every match, they will be placed where needed). 

 

**The format is subject to change due to time constraints, inclement weather, etc.**

 

Cost: $40 for the Fall Season (September 5th - October 24th) for Woodlands Members / $50 for the Fall Season (September 5th - October 24th) for Woodlands Guests. The cost includes six weeks of organized match play, balls, court fees, participation certificates, and the end of season party. This cost does not include weekly clinics. We suggest all players participate in weekly clinics to work on their technique, strategy, and court positioning. 

 

Requirements: You do not need to be a member of The Woodlands to participate.  As this is not a USTA or Junior Team Tennis affiliated program, players DO NOT need a USTA membership to participate. All players are required to play in the appropriate level. If you do not know your child's level, please contact us.

 

Volunteers: Parent court monitors will be needed each week for the 8 & Under and 10 & Under divisions. Court monitors help make the matches run smoothly and help to answer any questions on scoring, rules, where to stand, etc. We also ask for a few parents to bring snacks for the kids each week.

 

Awards: Each child will receive a participation certificate. We will have division awards for: Sportsmanship, Most Improved, Coaches Award, Hustler Award.  

 

Registration: Registration for the Fall season closes on Wednesday, September 3rd at 11:59pm. There are two steps to the registration process. After paying online, you must enroll your child by Clicking Here.
