USTA South Carolina is launching #TennisTogetherSC


What is Tennis Together SC?
It is a conscious effort to make tennis look more like the demographics of our state.

Its purpose?
To call the SC tennis community to meaningful action around race.

We are excited about the launch for Tennis Together South Carolina. Please share this information with your local volunteers and colleagues. Please ask them to visit our webpage link, take the survey, and use the hashtag #TennistogetherSC on our social media outlets. Once again, we appreciate your leadership and your commitment to making a difference.

Play and Pledge for Racquets for Recovery

This is an event that receives the strong endorsement of the LCTA

Hello fellow tennis enthusiasts,

As many of you may already know, we made the difficult decision in August to cancel this year’s Racquets for Recovery tournament benefiting the Hollings Cancer Center at MUSC. However, we have a smaller, individual campaign that everyone can participate in!

We call it Play and Pledge for Racquets for Recovery.

As so many of us are lucky enough to be playing the sport that we love, we are asking tennis players to pledge $1 for every set of tennis they play during the month of October and donate the total amount to Racquets for Recovery.

Attached is our Pledge Card, which is a convenient tool to help players keep track of their sets, but it is not necessary to use this card. On the card you will find instructions on where to send your donation. Information is also noted below.

Thank you so much for your continued support of Racquets for Recovery. Please share this information with your teams, members and friends, and do let me know if you have any questions.


Kelley Johnson
Racquets for Recovery

Please make checks payable to MUSC Foundation and put Racquets in the memo section. Mail to Trudy Holder, 4869 Habersham Lane, Summerville, SC 29483. Or you can make a donation online through this link: https://musc.ejoinme.org/…/tabid/1173606/Default.aspx

Hard copies of this score card are available.

LCTA Championship will be held after end of fall season and conclude by November 15th 2020.

Play your best, and we hope to see you at The Championships!

Qualification Process:

If there is 1 Flight in your Division:

The #1 and #2 Teams in the Flight will play for the Championship.

If there are 2 Flights in your Division:

The #1 Team from each Flight will play for the Championship.

There are several 3 Flight Divisions, and we will email qualifications to Captains separately.


The Championships will not be in Tournament form.

The Championship matches will be played individually.

Where we can, we will adhere to the Fall Schedule. We realize some players overlap within age brackets and there are several Day and Night Flight matches that will have to be scheduled on the weekend(s).

Divisions with 1 Flight:


18+ 4.5 Women play on Fridays at 9:30AM.

At the end of the Season, your Championship match of the top two teams would occur on the following Friday at 9:30AM.

The match would be held at the #1 Team’s Home Court.

Divisions with 2 Flights who only play Days or only play Nights:

Your Championship match with the # 1 Team from each Flight would also occur the following week on your regular play day and time.

When there are 2 Flights, we will do a Blind Draw on Facebook live to determine which team will host the Championship match.

When there is a #1 Team from the Day and a # 1 Team from the Night – the match will be scheduled for the next weekend – Play will be at 9:30AM or 1:00PM on Saturday or Sunday.

Again, we will do a Blind Draw on Facebook live to determine which team will host the Championship match.

When there is a #1 Team from the Day and a #1 Team from Saturday/Sunday – the match will be scheduled for the next weekend – Play will be at 9:30AM or 1:00PM on Saturday or Sunday.

Again, we will do a Blind Draw on Facebook live to determine which team will host the Championship Match.

We will announce the schedule for the Championship Matches as teams qualify near or at the end of the season.

We will notify the facilities regarding the season being extended for the championship matches.

We will adhere to State Championship Regulations and Coordinators will be at the sites. Trophies and Prizes will be awarded Post Match.

Please email with questions.
