2020 Comeback Team Challenge
**Register for the PLAYER DRAFT!
At the Laurel Park Tennis Center, Marietta, GA.

Right now we will start with just these wide open divisions. The early response has been amazing. But we are still not sure what the final count will be so we are combining the 16’s, 14’s, and 12’s together into one big division. If we get a large draft we may then subdivide the divisions.
Boys’ 16 to 12 & Under Team Competition
Girls’ 16 to 12 & Under Team Competition
(Friday evening will only be used if rain is in the forecast. Could do a Monday too if the rain is heavy.)
