Everyone will play a total of 10 games against the other (3) teams assigned to your flight. We will use modified ad scoring where you will go to deuce one time and if the team who gets the ad does not close out the game on that first ad point then the second deuce will be played as a no ad point with the receiving team having the choice of returner.
After tennis we will have lunch, awards and door prizes on the patio!
Don't forget to dress for the occasion in your reds, whites and blues to celebrate Independence Day! We will take a group picture at 9am!

2020 Hollytree Adult Davis Cup

NOVEMBER 13-15, 2020

It's time to find a member or a guest partner and sign up for the 2020 Hollytree Member-Guest Davis Cup! The Hollytree Davis Cup is the flagship event of the year for Tennis in the East Texas area. The tournament is open to all Hollytree MTA and WTA members and their invited guests and will be held November 13-15, 2020.

Non Members are welcome and encouraged to ask any of our club members to be your partner and join us for this fun event at Hollytree!

The Davis Cup is a men's and ladies doubles-team tournament. Hollytree MTA & WTA members are invited to sign up with a doubles partner of similar skill level for a fun weekend full of tennis, music, food & beverages and lots of fun. All doubles teams will be flighted into groups of (6) and each doubles team will play a 10 game set against the other (5) doubles teams in your respective flight. Players may sign up now to hold a spot and all signed up should have a designated partner no later than March 13, 2020. Flights will be determined once sign up is complete and are based on ratings as much as possible but teams do not sign up for specific divisions but are placed into flights as close to your level of play as possible. Each doubles team will also be strategically placed on a Country along with one doubles team from each of the other flights. Teams are competing for a chance to win their respective flight by winning all (5) of their weekend matches as well as competing for a chance to win the team championship by earning points for their country for each set won.

Tennis will begin on Saturday morning November 14 and all doubles teams will play (3) matches on Saturday and (2) on Sunday. All matches will be 10 game sets (first team to win 10 games) with no ad scoring and a tie break to 7 at 9-games all. All matches will be played at Hollytree (weather permitting) during the day on Saturday or Sunday. It is possible for us to work around a 1 or 2 hour time conflict on either day if you make sure and talk to us about the details of your time conflict prior to signing up for the event. We will not plan on playing any matches prior to the start of the event on Saturday. In addition to (5) matches all players will receive a tournament t-shirt, goody bag, Friday night court side dinner as well as Saturday & Sunday courtside breakfast, court side lunch and evening hors d' oeuvres. We will have live entertainment all three evenings for players and invited guests. Based on sponsorship commitments other amenities could be added to the weekend.

This tournament would not be possible without the generous support of our tournament sponsors. The sponsorship commitments allow us to provide additional and upgraded meals, beverages and entertainment that would not be possible with their support. The tournament will initially be limited to 30 men's teams and 30 ladies teams. The tournament entry fee for immediate entry into the event without sponsorship is $260 for MTA/WTA Members and $290 for guests. A lottery sign up is also available in the pro shop for discounted entry into the tournament based on space available at the close of sponsorship and open entry. Once sponsorship and sign up ends we will know how many spaces we have remaining in the tournament and those remaining spaces will then be filled. Hopefully we will have spots for everyone on the list. If we have more teams on this list than we have spots for then sign up will continue until the lottery drawing. If we have room for all teams on the lottery list then all teams will be entered into the event and others on a space available and level basis until the tournament is full. If a lottery is necessary then each MTA or WTA members names will go into the drawing giving Member-Member teams a better chance of getting into the tournament than a member-guest team. Partners who are not MTA/WTA members will not have their names placed in the lottery drawing. The reduced lottery entry fee of $170 for MTA/WTA members and $200 for all others gives all members not interested in sponsorship or paying the regular tournament entry fee an opportunity to participate in the event.

We hope everyone will be able to find a partner and join us for this fun weekend event at the club. If you have any questions or need help finding a partner let us know and we'll be glad to help! If you're interested in serving on any of the tournament committee's such as F&B, Entertainment, Decorations, Awards, Goody Bags, etc please let us know!We hope you will make plans to join us as a player or spectator for this great event.

The 2020 East Texas Jr. Gran Prix / UTR Circuit is a series of one day junior tournaments open to all area juniors who have not yet qualifed for Champs from participation in the USTA Challenger level tournaments. Champs (qualifed players) who will age up prior to August 1, 2020 (and not automatically be a Champ in their new age bracket) are eligible to participate in the age division they will qualify for as of September 1, 2020. Only champs will age up prior to August 1 are eligible - Champs (as of August 1, 2020) will not be eligible to advance to the September 2020 Jr. Gran Prix State Championships. All eligible juniors ( may participate in the age division they are eligible for as of the first day of the month of any particular tournament. Juniors who are doing very well in their current age division and who will age up prior to September 1, 2019 are encouraged to play (local tournaments) in the age division they must play in as of September 1, 2020. Juniors who are not winning the majority of their matches in their current age division are encouraged not to play “up” into the next higher age bracket even if they will age up prior to September 1, 2020. If a junior plays our local tournaments in 14's for example and finishes #1 but then turns 15 on or before September 1, 2020 he/she will not be eligible to advance to the state championships since he/she qualified in 14’s but is now 15.

Players will accumulate points throughout the series of events based on the following point chart.

4 points for each round won in the main draw or round robin

4 points for a BYE in the main draw if the following round is won

4 points for a 1st round default if the following round is won

(4 points will be awarded for all other default wins)

2 points for each round won in the consolation draw

1 point for participating in and completing two rounds in each tournament

All Jr. Gran Prix match results beginning with the 2019-2020 Circuit will count towards the player's UTR (Universal Tennis Rating).

If a player withdraws or no shows from (2) events then he will be ineligible to advance with Team East Texas to the State Championships.

Entry Fee for singles in each event is payable by credit card only at www.EastTexasTennis.topdoglive.com and is $20 inclusive of registration fee and entry fee. Entry fees cannot be refunded. If a junior enters a tournament and needs to withdraw prior to the tournament deadline he/she may request by email (prior to the deadline of the event withdrawing from) to be moved to another tournament on the list and must indicate which tournament they wish to move to at the time of their withdrawal. We are not able to move kids to future tournaments once the deadline for the tournament in which they are entered has passed.

The top two point earners in each age division will earn the chance to compete for Team East Texas in the Texas State Team Championships held September 2020 at John Newcomb’s Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels. Should either of the top two point earners not be able to attend the championships then others will be invited based on the strength/quality of wins, order of finish, number of events played, attitude and sportsmanship. The alternates will not necessarily be selected in order of finish. If a player qualifies for the state tournament in two age divisions from playing in different events throughout the local competition then he/she will represent the team in the "younger" age division to increase the strength of our team. Likewise if younger players play “up” and qualify for the State Tournament the team coach has the right to play that player in younger age divisions at the State Championships if possible in order to benefit the team.Age divisions offered in each tournament will include green ball co-ed 10’s, boys & girls 12’s, boys & girls 14’s and boys & girls 16-18's. Current point standings are available at www.EastTexasTennis.topdoglive.com by clicking on any junior gran prix tournament then on the STANDINGS tab in the top right corner of the page. It is the player’s responsibility to check point standings and notify the tournament director within 10 days of any event he/she feels like the points might have been awarded incorrectly.

USTA membership is not required to participate in any of the East Texas Jr. Gran Prix tournaments or the State Championships. All local tournaments will offer consolation and or round robin play if less than (5) in the draw. If a division has only 2 players in the tournament when the draw is made the tournament director will give those players the option to withdraw for full refund or be moved into the next higher division. Players must notify the tournament of their decision within 24 hours after the Monday deadline. Match format will be based on the size of the tournament and draws.Green Dot balls will be used for all 10 & Under divisions.USTA rules govern match play. Parents are not permitted on the courts or allowed to coach. The only way to enter the tournaments is at www.EastTexasTennis.topdoglive.com.
