Charleston Tennis Circuit in partnership with Gwinnett Tennis in Atlanta introduce the Rally to The Slam, a new and exciting series of 14 verified Universal Tennis Rating tournaments (7 in Atlanta & 7 in Charleston, SC) for the age groups of 21 and under. Each tournament guarantees 3 matches during the round-robin stage and the top players of each group advance to an elimination round. When playing Rally to The Slam tournaments, you not only compete for your verified UTR, you will also collect points to win cool prizes and qualify for an invitation team tournament on October 29-31, 2021 in Atlanta, where the Charleston Tennis Circuit team will be coached by tournament director, Sandy Franz to battle it out with Gwinnett Tennis and their coach and director, Chase Hodges.






Qualification to the Year-End Invitational Tournament 


CTC & Gwinnett Tennis are inviting a total of 32 players (16 players from Charleston Tennis Circuit & 16 players from Gwinnett Tennis). It is important to us that players of all different levels are able to join the teams so we will be inviting 4 players of each of the following UTR groups:

0.00 - 3.00 UTR - 4 players 

3.01 - 6.00 UTR - 4 players 

6.01 - 9.00 UTR - 4 players 

9.01 - open UTR - 4 players 

Sandy Franz will be the tennis coach for CTC and Chase Hodges for Gwinnett Tennis. You will be playing singles and doubles matches representing your team to battle for the year end team trophy, while also enjoying off court activities, which will be announced at a later stage. The entry fee for this verified team event is free of charge for all invited tennis players. The following year, the year-end event will be hosted in Charleston, SC.
