2013 BATTLE OF THE BAY: SF versus The Rest
Registration is closed: if you are still interested, please email the event directors below to be added to a list of alternates. Thanks!
Who really rules the Bay? Sign up for the Battle of the Bay to find out! This event is an opportunity for players of all levels to compete in a team environment specifically designed to help you play your best game possible, and bring out the spirit of friendly competition. There will be two teams: San Francisco versus The Rest of the Bay...East Bay, South Bay, and North Bay...so, let's see who really rules the Bay! (Travelers are welcome, too, to join the rest of us.)
We'll play an hour and a half of team-based tennis games run by local pro, Grand Slam player and three-time NCAA champion, Amy Jensen. Once you've got your shots dialed in and have bonded with your team, you'll play two no-ad sets followed by one last action-packed team game. Each set and game will be worth points; whichever team has the most points at the end of the day, wins!
Not only will we have lots of fun, but this event will give many of us a chance to play side-by-side with GLTF'ers that we might not know or normally be on the same team with, while still giving us all an opportunity to play some competitive matches.
There's only room for 10 Rest of the Bay players and 10 SF players, so register now!
