Triples Tennis

Triples tennis is a fun way to play tennis and get in a killer workout! It is fast paced, and enables more people to play the game at once. Each triples team consists of at least 4 players at either the Intermediate (3.0 - 3.5) and Advanced (3.5+) levels. Triples is a 3 on 3 format with one player at the net and two at the baseline for each team. After each point concludes, players rotate on and of of the court.

There will be three rounds of triples during the tournament:
10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Tournament participants will have the flexibility to play in one or all three triples sessions. We highly encourage triples teams to be co-ed!
Tennis rankings for triples play are 3.0-3.5 (Intermediate) and 3.5+ (Advanced). Each triples team should be comprised of Intermediate or Advanced players.
