We have been keeping an eye out on the weather and are seeing a lot of different forecasts. We will make a final decision regarding the tournament by 12:00 PM Sunday. If we decide to cancel the tournament, we will email parents and update the website and communicate through our facebook page. If the tournament is rained out, we will offer all players an opportunity to play in next season's tournament free of charge. To help in this, we will send a sign up form Monday that you can fill out with your child's information.

Who's Invited: Everyone!
Players will play to five points. Winner serves after every point.
The first player to reach five points wins the game and advances to the hula-hoop, and has a chance to score a point for their team by hitting a ball in the target (hula-hoop). The losing player remains at the court and keeps the points they score versus a new player of the opposite team who starts from with 0.
The winning player will stand behind a line and attempt to serve a ball into a hula-hoop hanging from the fence. If the ball goes into the hoop, they score one point for their team and return to the back of the line. If it does not go in, they return to the back of the line and wait for the next available court.
After 20 minutes, the team with the most points scored from the hula-hoop wins.

The tournament takes place at the end of each semester's class at a multi-court tennis facility. All participants who signed up for the after school program can play.
