Players have until Dec. 31 to register as a team or individually as a free-agent for the first-ever USTA Florida Blacklight OVERNIGHT adult team tennis XGLOsive event in Florida, Feb. 9-10 in Naples, where the winning squad will receive $1,000.
The cost for individuals is $50 and USTA Florida will match you up with a team. Full teams of 4-6 players can register for $300, and for all players discounted hotel rooms are available and with a late check-out time of 2 p.m. so players have the option to book only one hotel night on Saturday if they prefer.
The one-of-a-kind adult team tennis event will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9, and conclude at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10 at the famed Sanchez-Casal Academia in Naples. USTA membership is not required.
“The all-night tournament will kick off with a sunset dinner and opening celebration, and teams can enjoy midnight snacks, a cash bar, and breakfast all while great music plays in a high-energy atmosphere,” says organizer and USTA Florida Local League Coordinator Trish DiPalo.
Rules are modified to level the playing field, and teams will play a minimum of nine matches in a 10-point tiebreak-style tournament that will run all night on three black-light powered courts.
