What is Lone Star tennis?
Lone Star Tennis is a USTA program where 2.5 level ladies’ teams compete in a local tournament event, with Spring winners advancing to state sectional competition. A team is made up of 6 to 12 players. Teams compete by playing 3 lines of doubles (no singles). Each doubles line plays a 6-game pro set, no ad scoring. The team that wins the Spring Lone Star tournament in Austin earns a trip to Lone Star Sectionals where they will play with other teams from around Texas in a weekend of great fun, great tennis, and great prizes.
Do I qualify to play Lone Star?
