DRAWS - 2019 Battle of Atlanta Challenge

Below are the draws for the Battle Of Atlanta Challenge. The Advanced Draw is first, followed by the Novice, and then there are five draws for the Intermediate. Upon arrival at the Sharon Lester Tennis Center, you'll be checked in & assigned your court.

Tournament Details:

Cost is $20 per player/$200 per team, please note each company is allowed a maximum of three teams in the tournament.

  • Diverse Corporate Teams: Imagine a tournament competition with tennis teams composed of players from different companies and franchises in Atlanta. Last year’s  participants included: Coca-Cola, Deloitte, GE Power, I Play Tennis, Mercedes-Benz, Pressley Tax Services, Tennis Warehouse, and Warner Media.

  • Players: Each team will have a roster of players affiliated with a company battling against each other to be crowned the “King/Queen of the Courts” in Atlanta. Each team must have at least 3 players each match that are current or former company employees. This is for fun & charity, so we’re asking all teams to monitor themselves to be sure requirements are met.

  • Playing Level: No matter what your experience in tennis is, you will have a chance to play. You may choose which subdivisions to play in, from Novice (C), Intermediate (B) and Advanced (A) draws.

  • Draws: Draws will have First Round Consolation. (A separate draw within the tournament for teams that suffer a first round loss in the tournament).

  • Match Rules: The tournament match play will be set up similar to USTA Leagues but with a World Team Tennis line up: two lines of singles (men’s and women’s singles) and three lines of doubles (men's doubles, women's doubles and mixed doubles). Each line within a match will play an 8-Game pro-set.

  • Teams: Each team will be composed of 10 players: eight for the line up and two subs. The line up can be changed at any course of the tournament except when a match is in play. A player may not play in more than one line during a match (for example, the men’s singles player can’t play mixed doubles, women’s singles line can’t play in women’s doubles, etc).

  • Limitations: Each company is allowed a maximum of three teams to participate in the tournament, one for each playing level (novice, intermediate, advanced).

  • Food: Lunch will be provided for all participants Saturday and Sunday (8/17 & 8/18)
