Zonals: One Location For 12s, 14s, 16s

April 30, 2009 02:13 PM

This year the 2009 Zone Team Championships (Zonals) will be played over the same dates, Wednesday, July 29 to Sunday, Aug. 2.

As mentioned, please read carefully, for there are two web site pages for each Zonal. Below, you will be given the ID# for the Southern Application Site as well as a link to the actual tournament home page. To be eligible to represent Southern, you will go to the Southern Application Site ID# of your age division and follow the entry procedure. To gain more information on the actual tournament site, hotels, directions etc., please click on the Tournament Home Page link.

The endorsement requirement for each of the events is to play in the Southern Closed in the age division you wish to play Zonals and to fall into the endorsed group (stated on the chart). We will have six teams representing USTA Southern in Knoxville and Winston-Salem, and five teams at Huntsville. Each team consists of six boys and six girls. Everyone will play a singles and doubles match each round (five rounds). Coaching is allowed in Zonals and each team will have their own coach, assigned by USTA Southern.

We very much look forward to a great opportunity and experience for our players. Please do not wait to sign up at the last minute. Sign up now. This is always a highlight of each player’s tennis experience.

Once again, registration for Zonals will be done online. In 2009, our teams will play at the following sites:
