Family Day is a wonderful opportunity for families to not only visit their child's site, but to also participate with our players and celebrate what they’ve accomplished. It’s a day filled with a fun and active atmosphere. It provides the chance for our players’ parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins to experience KCTL firsthand and interact with our volunteers and coaches.
Family Day 2016 will be held on Saturday, June 25 at each site.
Davis Cup is a doubles tournament that marks the first official day of competition among all clubs. Until this point in the season, our players learn tennis fundamentals and strategy to prepare for competition, without actually partaking in scored matchplay. To emulate the real Davis Cup, each club chooses a country to represent and research. Before the matches, we learn about and discuss the geography, history, and cultures of the countries chosen. In addition to competitive doubles play, Davis Cup is a wonderful educational opportunity for participants.
Davis Cup 2016 is scheduled for Saturday, July 30 at Marcy Tennis Club.
Youth Tennis Tournament & Community Jamboree
To conclude each season, our players get to show off their skills at the Youth Tennis Tournament & Community Jamboree. Similar to the majors like Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, we create age-based brackets in which participants get a taste of the individual pressure faced by professionals. This provides a rare experience that our players truly enjoy as they learn competition, camaraderie, and sportsmanship. It’s an incredible day where parents, players, coaches, and volunteers all come together to celebrate the season with food, music, and tennis.
The Seventh Annual Jamboree will take place on October 1, 2016 at Marcy Tennis Club.
