    Learn to play tennis and enjoy this sport of a lifetime!

    CTA’s Tennis Basics Program is designed for the novice to play and develop skills at the same time. Whether you are brand new to tennis, haven’t played in decades or are an entry-level player that needs to focus on technique – this program is for you!

    The program utilizes larger balls that bounce slower for guaranteed racquet contact and will be run by the teaching professionals of East Potomac Tennis Center.

    During the 6 week program participants will progress from the red tennis ball to green tennis ball and learn how to:

    • Hit Ground Strokes (forehand and backhand)
    • Serve
    • Volley
    • Hit Lobs and Overheads
    • Score

    Tennis Basics is FREE to CTA Members in good standing that can identify with one of the types of players below:

    • Players just starting to play tennis
    • Players with limited experience and still working primarily on getting the ball into play
    • Players that lack directional intent, have incomplete swings, incomplete service motion, avoid forehand or backhand, and/or have grip problems.
    • Some players whose form is still developing and are prepared for moderately paced shots, may have preparation problems, and can keep the ball in play, but are inconsistent

    Unsure if you fit the requirements, but want to participate? Please email president@capital-tennis.org for consideration.

    Not a CTA Member? Join today to participate in this great program!

    Space is limited so register today!

    If you have any questions, please contact president@capital-tennis.org.

    Since this is a progression based program, it is encouraged that you only sign-up if you can attend at least 5 (out of 6) of the weeks so that you don't fall behind.


    Please note that the CTA President and CTA League Commissioner have final approval of the participation list for the sole purpose of ensuring that all participants are beginner tennis players and CTA members in good standing.

    The program will not be held over Memorial Day weekend.

    • George Washington University (Mt Vernon Campus), Washington DC

    Time and Place

    Matches will be held from 8 a.m.- 6 p.m. on June 3-4, 2017, at the George Washington University Tennis Center at 2100 Foxhall Road, NW, Washington, DC 20007.

    Tournament Format

    The tournament will begin with round-robin group play in the five divisions, Open, A, B, C, and D, feeding into five elimination brackets to determine this year’s champions.  For round-robin phase, some players will be seeded and all drawn into groups, with each player playing three matches against players in their group.   Players with the most winning record in their group will advance to elimination brackets, either as quarterfinals (only if large draw), semifinals (more likely), or straight to a final (for small draw).  Seeds in each division will be determined by our tournament committee, with consideration of both GLTA ranking points and CTA CAPERS ratings. (Actual number of groups and seeds in each division will follow from tournament registration results).  

    Round robin phase matches will be best-of-three tiebreak sets with no-ad scoring and a first-to-10-points match tiebreaker in lieu of a third set. Group winners will advance to the elimination bracket, where matches will be full best-of-three tiebreak sets, normal scoring. 

    Timely play during all matches will be very important and will be monitored. Warm-ups will be no more than 7 minutes. No more than 20 seconds in between points. Changeovers will be no more than 90 seconds, two-minutes in between sets. No break after the first game of a set. We will have many matches to get through!

    Tournament Ratings

    GLTA Rating: If a player has a GLTA rating, then that player cannot play below their GLTA rating.

    CAPERS Rating: If a player doesn’t have a GLTA rating, then that player must follow the below guidelines using their CAPERS rating.

    - Players with a CAPERS rating of 4.5 and above must play Open

    - Players with a CAPERS rating of 4.0 - 4.49 must play A or higher

    - Players with a CAPERS rating of 3.5 - 3.99 must play B or higher

    - Players with a CAPERS rating of 3.0 - 3.49 must play C or higher

    - Players with a CAPERS rating of 2.99 and below must play D or higher

    NOTE: Previous winner: If a player has won the division in the year prior (CSC2016), that player must play up a division level

    ▪ Winners from previous year will be available to co-directors in advance of registration to insure they are registered correctly

    Participants will register for the tournament based on the ratings guidelines. Players can play up a division but not down. Any questionable registrations shall be approached on case-by-case basis, as policy does allow for appeals to tournament directors to register in a draw that may not be consistent with current policy.

    Determining Group Winners

    Group winners advancing to elimination brackets will be determined in the following order:

    1.     Most match wins. 

    2.     Head-to-head results, if (only) two players have the same number of group match wins. 

    3.     Sets won and lost, if more than two players have the same number of match wins or there is no head-to-head result between two players. Match tiebreakers count as sets. 

    4.     Games won and lost. Match tiebreakers count as one game. 

    5.     Sets won and lost among players involved in the tie. 

    6.     Games won and lost among players involved in the tie. 

    7.     Coin flip. 

    Note, some elimination brackets may need completion from best 2nd place finishes in group play (same ranking criteria, 1-7, will be applied).

    Registration

    Registration opens Friday, May 19, and will close on Sunday, May 28th.  Participants will register for the tournament based on their GLTA World Tour rating (if applicable) or CTA singles CAPERS rating (click on My stats and schedule on the left menu to view your rating) if no GLTA World Tour rating is applicablePlayers can play up a division but not down. Players who won in their division for the 2016 Championships will need to play up to the next division this year.   Please contact the tournament directors if you are considering registering for a division different from the provided guidelines. Requests will be considered case-by-case, striving for fairness to all players.

    Amenities

    We will provide bottled water, ice and snacks, peanut butter, bagels, granola bars, etc. On Saturday we will offer an assorted sandwiches and chips lunch between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
