It's Tournament Time

My tennis team is on the courts in Las Vegas today.  We are hoping to win our bracket by defeating the three other teams in order to advance to the quarterfinals by Saturday evening.  Winners of the quarterfinals advance to the finals on Sunday morning and the finals are scheduled for 1:00pm on Sunday.

In order to win the tournament, we would need to win a total of six matches over the weekend.  In World Team Tennis, this means each round is composed of singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.  The winner is decided by overall points in each round.

I can't wait to get on the courts and play.  There are a total of nineteen teams from all over the country.  The teams playing had to qualify first by winning a local tournament or league.  We are hoping to bring the trophy back to Ramona and earn a berth in the national tournament at the end of the year.

Go Ramona!
