Progressive Doubles Tournament

Pair up with different players each round while keeping your match play competitive. Play one set then move up or down the courts based on the results of your match and the number of total players. Prizes awarded to the doubles team on the top court at the end of the tournament.

Recommended by:

Bill Dahm, Tennis Pro Supervisor (NRC)

Why I chose this program: 

This will be a fun, competitive event for different levels of tennis players. Players tend to be unsure of their playing levels compared to others, so this format will do a much better job getting levels of players together. Players will also be able to meet others they do not normally play with.
