USTA Florida’s Northeast Team Tennis Challenge, presented by Wilson Racquet Sports, will be hosted by the Omni Amelia Island Plantation in Amelia Island on Oct. 11-12, 2014.

Registration is now open for the two-day tournament, which will host divisions including 10-under Advanced, 12-under, 14-under, and 18-under, with three skill divisions: novice, intermediate and advanced. All age 12- to 18-and-under intermediate/advanced teams need a minimum of two boys and two girls. 10-and-under advanced and all novice teams are gender-blind with a minimum of four players and a maximum of eight players.
