New Exciting Tennis Tournament Formats for the Charleston Tennis Community!

Looking back during my tennis career, I remember those days, when it was 6:4 5:4 and 40:15 on my serve. With the next point, I could take home the victory and advance to the next round of the tournament. On paper this seemed very easy (just one more point); but, my heart during these situations was racing, while my anxiety level increased dramatically. Many times my anxiety got the best of me and instead of leaving the tennis court with a victory, I had to shake hands with my opponent and congratulate him.


These situations are part of the learning curve for every tennis player. Most of us probably have been in a similar situation like it. Especially when losing, I was hoping to compete in another match on the same or, latest, the next day. Unfortunately, many times the tournament experience was over, and I had to wait until the next tournament was scheduled to make up for this heartbreaking loss.


Gaining match experience in a tournament setting acts as an important role for your development as a tennis player. This is exactly why CTC tournaments offer, in most of our tournaments, at least 3 guaranteed matches. This provides you as a participant, the opportunity to gain valuable and competitive experience of playing against at least three different opponents and game styles. We are eager for you to experience our new tournament format for the upcoming tournaments!
