The tennis One-on-One Doubles Shoot-Out series will make a stop in North Florida when the Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach hosts a serve-and-volley event with rockin’ blues music on Oct. 6, 2018, from 3-7 p.m.
One-On-One Doubles is the half-court, serve and volley singles game played crosscourt-only with the alley included. Tournaments enforce its serve-and-volley rule, on both serves, or there is a loss of point. Half-volleys are permitted, and the returner can stay back or come in.
“All players are guaranteed three matches that usually last two hours before we hit the quarterfinals,” says organizer Ed Krass. “Top juniors, college players, teaching professionals and touring players are all welcome to register.”
The winner will receive $1,200, with prize money distributed through fourth place. Play will be alongside a live concert by Chicago blues circuit veterans the RJ Howson Band, and the $50 entry fee includes the player party with food and beverages.
