Chesapeake College to host 3rd annual junior tennis tournament
October 8-9 tourney expanded to also include boys’ and girls’ doubles (Entry forms)

WYE MILLS – Chesapeake College will host its third annual Junior Tennis Tournament the weekend of October 8-9, adding boys’ and girls’ doubles to its previous offerings of boys’ and girls’ singles and mixed doubles.

Entry fees are $20 for singles and $10 for each member of any doubles team. All entrants who register by September 30th will receive a tournament T-shirt. Winners and runners-up in each flight receive trophies.

The tournament began in 2009 with just girls’ singles and doubles. Mixed doubles was added last year, replacing girls’ doubles. The boys’ and girls’ doubles draws were added this year in response to player requests.

"We had people at last year’s tournament who said they would have liked the option to play boys’ and girls’ doubles, so we’re going to try out those draws this year," said Rich Midcap, the tournament director.

North Caroline High’s Madison Parks and Queen Anne’s County High’s Matthew Goldberg won last year’s girls’ and boys’ singles titles, respectively. Goldberg and Lions teammate Christy Nave won the mixed doubles crown.

The tournament is open to boys and girls in grades 9 through 12 in the 2011-12 school year. Individuals interested in registering for the tournament may obtain a tournament registration form at www.chesapeake.edu/athletics/tennisforms11.pdf. Forms are also being distributed to North Bayside tennis coaches at each high school.

Checks should be made payable to Chesapeake College, with "tennis tournament" on the check’s notation line. They may be mailed with a completed entry form to: Chesapeake College, c/o Rich Midcap, P.O. Box 8, Wye Mills, MD 21679.

Matches will be best-of-three sets with advantage scoring, although tournament officials reserve the right to use no-ad pro sets if inclement weather shortens the tournament.
