X TeamTennis highlights high school talent

The WTT format is popular with players of all ages, including high school players. A recent X TeamTennis event in Kansas City paired up some of the area's top young talent for the Kansas City X TeamTennis Championships at the Plaza Tennis Center (May 27-29).

The KC XTT champions were  Mac Newton and Holly Hawkins of Liberty North High School. The finalists were Stephanie Laures and Spencer Kunz of Platte County High School.
 
The X TeamTennis format features co-ed high school teams competing in three sets - men's and women's singles and mixed doubles. The unique WTT format, which is also played by the pros in Mylan WTT, includes no-ad scoring and coaching. The champion is the team that wins the most total games.
