MCTA Risings Stars Play Hot Tennis in Cool Weather

November 26, 2008 03:00 PM

The Mid-Carolina Tennis Association hosted their third and final 2008 Rising Stars tournament on November 22, 2008. Fifty-nine juniors participated, by far the best turnout for a MCTA Rising Stars this year. Players competed in all age groups for both girls and boys under 10 to under 18. Under 10 participants competed using the QuickStart format with 60-foot courts and low compression balls. The temperature in Rock Hill at the start of the tournament was well below freezing and hovered no higher than the mid-40s throughout the afternoon. Players, parents and staff battled the frosty conditions with many layers and numerous cups of hot cocoa. Hot pizza served at lunchtime to all participants also helped everyone keep warm.  MCTA Jr. Team Tennis participants were awarded a $5 rebate when they signed up for the tournament and over two-dozen JTT players took advantage of the offer.
