2020 “Bobby Curtis” Green Ball Sectional Championship

September 26 - September 27

Know Before You Go

Please keep in mind that due to current circumstances, this is a very fluid time and while we intend to hold the tournament, like many others, it may have to be cancelled.  We will do our best to keep you informed. 
 
Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic and suspension of play, all the qualifying tournaments have been cancelled. This year, we will have an Open selection process taking the first 32 Boys and first 32 Girls to register. 
 
When you register on Tennis Link, your registration will be tagged with a time and date stamp indicating the date and time of your registration.  This will determine the first 32 players in each division. The alternate list will be set using the same method, based on the time and date stamp. 

Please review the USTA Florida tournament safety guidelines prior to the tournament.

Player Selection & Schedule

Players are selected manually by the tournament director after the close of registration. Schedule will be posted in TennisLink.

The schedule of play for the day will be set on a T.V. screen at the Tournament Administration building and due to safety protocols, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to the “Not Before Time” indicated.  What this means is that if you see your name on the screen and it says Start Time Not Before 9:30, please arrive at 9:15.  You will see your court assignment on the screen and can go directly to your assigned court.
