1. A Recruiting Forum conducted by Dave Mullins

2. Lunch will be provided for the players by the USTA.

Eligibility: Entry is open to all high school age players (9th through 12th grades). Participants will get to compete in front of 100s of college coaches attending the ITA Convention from all levels and divisions. All participants will receive a TRN/ITA tournament towel.

Entry Information: Entries will be accepted on a first-entered, first-accepted basis. To enter, call Julie Wrege at 770-993-5723 with entry and credit card information. Entry fee is $35.00. In the case of inclement weather, this event will be cancelled. You may call 678-778-7627 if you have any questions.

Site Information: The tournament will be played on the 15 clay courts of the Naples Grand Beach Resort. The address is 475 Seagate Drive, Naples, FL 34103 for directions on your GPS or map app.

Results Used for TRN Rankings: The results from this tournament will be used for the rankings on TennisRecruiting.net. Results will also be submitted to UTR. This tournament is not USTA sanctioned; therefore no USTA points will be awarded.

Draw Limit and Match Format: The draw limit is 32 boys and 32 girls. Matches will be the best of three short sets (first to four games) with no-ad scoring and a tiebreaker played in lieu of the third set. We will try to guarantee all players three matches.

Recruiting Forum: The ITA has added a Q&A Recruiting Forum to this year’s ITA/TRN Showcase tournament. Dave Mullins, the Managing Director of Community Engagement and Coach Empowerment at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, [See bio below.] will be conducting this session, so come with your questions prepared. The forum will be presented at the courts from 8:30-9:15 a.m. with play beginning at 9:30 a.m. There will be no check-in or warm-up during the forum.

Warm-up: An extended warm-up time (15 minutes) will be allowed prior to your first match.

Lunch: The USTA will be providing lunch at the courts for each of the competing players served by the Naples Grand staff.
