Tennis coaches, parents and players around the state had a busy weekend on the tennis courts during the USTA Florida Team Tennis Challenge this past weekend at Sanlando Park in Orlando.

The event hosted 178 children and 34 teams between the ages of 7-18. Eight teams competed in the 10U orange ball intermediate division, four teams in the 10U advanced, eight teams in the 12U novice division, 8 teams in the 14U intermediate division, and six teams in the 18U intermediate division.

The event for the 10U intermediate orange ball division was one day on Dec. 3, with an awards ceremony following the final matches. All other divisions played both days with the awards ceremony following the final matches on Sunday, Dec. 4.

Participants were required to have played two matches in a USTA Florida Junior Team Tennis Local League during the year, and be between ages 7-18 years old.

“The Team Tennis Challenge was a great way to end a successful 2016,” said USTA Florida Junior Team Tennis Coordinator Liz Coates. “We had roughly 2,500 kids playing in the local leagues around the state and this challenge gathered teams from different areas. We hope to continue growing Junior Team Tennis next year!”
