a totally new way to compete!
CONVENIENT. EMPOWERING. REWARDING.
Know your hours upfront. Start at 9am and finish by 12pm. That's it. No more wasted time waiting between matches and weekends lost. Plus, all tournaments held at the private and pristine Landon School minutes from downtown Bethesda and 495. Tournaments are verified UTR, so kids build their national and international ranking.
Competing is more than just winning or losing -- for us competing is about empowering the kids to push themselves and focus on improvements rather than allowing the final score to define them. That is why we offer both a Back Draw -- so that all kids are guaranteed at least 2 matches -- as well as an on-site High-Performance clinic for those that have been eliminated.
We give kids something fun to compete for! Players accumulate points throughout the summer by reaching the finals and semi-finals of any given tournament. We keep a running leader board (see below) and the top male and female point earners win a trip to the US Open in August! See here for details of the trip, valued at $295.
HOW DO I REGISTER?
You have two ways to participate in a tournament:
1) Register for the dates you want directly on the UTR platform HERE. For this option you pay the full registration fee as shown on the UTR page.
2) Purchase a pack of tournament credits (packs of 4, 6 or 8) for a bulk discount HERE. You purchase the credits from us and then tell us what dates you want your child to play and we register them.

WHO IS IT FOR?
These competitions are open to kids from 8+ at all levels who understand that to get better at tennis, practice is just not enough. Competition allows players to expand their strategic comprehension, learn how to control nerves, experience different playing styles and get better! Draws are created based on the player's UTR ranking and there are no gender or age brackets. There is both a back draw for those that lose in the first round, as well as a high-performance clinic that players feed into once they finish the tournament.
