This summer my goal is emphasize the value of match play. Every Thursday for team tennis practice we will be hosting a tournament. Anyone can play. We will play sets instead of full matches, no-ad scoring, with either a compass of round robin draw (depending on the size of the draw each week). This way I can know who is coming to practice and how many we have each week. You will need to register on line at least two days before each event. We will never start before 1:00PM for these events and I anticipate practice lasting the same amount of time as last year. This will be a valuable asset to our Jr. Players. Each of these tournaments is listed on http://tennislink.usta.com as a Warrior Summer Circuit Single Day Showdown. Yes, we will have winners for each tournament. This is the best way for our players to improve and registration is only $15 each week.

*The schedule below also includes level 4 tournaments that I would recommend playing that are not part of our circuit.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Below is a list of all of the tournaments in Southern Illinois this summer.
