Anyone competing in a tournament this summer?

I will compete in two tournaments this summer:

The Lost Forest Open in Houston, Texas (hard-courts) July 7-9

The Sourthern Oaks NTRP in Baton, Rougue Louisiana (red clay) Aug 3-6

Not really ready for the Open bracket yet, so I will be competing at the 3.5 level in both tournaments. These are my first USTA tournaments. Wish me luck guys.


Anyone else competing?

I am!

Crape Myrtle Classic in Raleigh, NC. It's a "gay tournament" (although I assume anyone can enter) that benefits some local charities. It's gonna be played July 28-30. It's gonna be so frickin' hot, but all the Yankees that come down will easily wilt in the southern heat so that'll give me an advantage!

There's some pictures from last year's tournament on the link to my tennis club in my signature. There were some hot guys there, but whoever was taking the pictures didn't get too many of them!

I'm playing in the National Public Parks Championships next week. They're being held at the USTA National Tennis Center (US Open site). I'm in the mens doubles and mixed doubles draws and while I'm certainly not gonna be hoisting any hardware by the end of the week, I'm hoping to sneak through and win a round or two in each draw. It'll be a thrill to play on the US Open courts too!

I don't think so I may be playing one in August, but that's a city tournament. I'm not confident in my game yet to go to the USTA-sanctioned tournaments just yet as I'm still coming back from wrist injury

There aren't enough words to describe how envious I am of you. I hope you sneak through to the final of both draws. By the way, are any finals scheduled on a show court?

I played in one so far in June. Tennessee State Junior Qualifying and I made the semi-finals so Im going to Southerns this weekend. You need to make the quarter-finals to get into Southerns automatically, if you lose before then its up to your ranking because there are some open spots after the 8 from each Southern state. . I dont really think Ill make the quarters in that which is what you need for Nationals, so I guess it will end there. I have one after that on clay in Tunica and the week after that Tennessee State Open. Ill finally have 2 weeks break before State Closed. Blah.

I played dobules in Qualifying and we got to the quarters, but it doesnt matter because doubles is really just for fun and my partner didnt make it to Southerns so I had to get another parnter.

fuck.

Good luck!

Its gonna be hot and humid in Houston and Baton Rouge this summer! USTA events are generally fun. Remember to take the time to meet new friends and attend the social events, if they have them.
