THE COURT 16 OPEN

ORANGE BALL TOURNAMENT ON 60 FT COURT

Challenge your way to the top!

The Court 16 Open is a ladder tournament where players challenge one another week after week in order to make their way to the top. It will run from September 21st to February 10th. The Court 16 Open aims to prepare players (and parents!) for USTA tournaments through supervised competitive play.

From playing an actual set to the umpire chair, each match is designed to immerse players in real tournament conditions  Running for 60 minutes under the supervision of one of Court 16’s resident coaches, each match is an occasion to grow as a competitive player.

Players' progress will be tracked week after week via in-match stats, court-level view footage and written technical and tactical feedback.
