    2019 Love All Women's Event

    Held since 2004, GLTF's Love All Women's Tournament is a premier GLTF tennis event.

    As always, we have a fantastic mix of tennis and fun lined up. Competitive tennis paired up with non-traditional point-earning engagement - join us for a celebratory love/community-themed Sunday in your most-festive love-themed garb.

    What we've got planned
    • Closely-matched doubles team setup, and each team plays throughout the event. As always, there are two types of competition -- 1) on the court, and 2) everything else. ALL levels welcome and encouraged!
    • Bonus points added for various non-doubles activities (team outfits, skill testing) -- which actually can help you win!  Show your spirit and dress in the theme of Love All! This can be love as it relates to tennis, Summer of Love, community love, romantic love - use your creativity. All teams whose members dress in theme (must be both members) will start the day with points before ever stepping on the court!
    • Continental breakfast (including coffee), full lunch and goodies provided.
    • A great social event - catch-up with old friends and meet new ones!
    Details
    Partner-up and register as a doubles team.  If you don't have a doubles partner to register with, contact us and we will do our best to match you up. One member of the team will register for both players -- both MUST BE GLTF MEMBERS. 

    Early Registration: $70/team Register by Wednesday, July 31st
    Regular Registration: $80/team

    Check-in begins at 9:15 the day of the event.
