Upcoming Leagues

Check out the information below about the upcoming BGITA Leagues!



The BGITA Mixed 18+ leagues are starting soon! Come join the fun!



Tri-Level Tennis leagues are a great option to create more teams and play more people. Each team will have a line of 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 players for 3 lines of doubles each match. Winning local teams advance to a State Championship with a chance of advancing to the Sectional Championship.



The Southern Combo Doubles program is the fastest-growing adult program in the Southern Section! Local team play is available at the 2.5 level and combined levels 5.5, 6.5, and 7.5. Team matches consist of three doubles. Winning local teams advance to a State Championship, with a chance of advancing to the Sectional Championship.

 

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER!

Silent Raffle

This year we are doing a Silent Raffle in which you can purchase tickets to place in boxes associated with a particular door prize. There is no limit to how many tickets you can place in a box. So, the more tickets you place in a box, the more chances you have to win. 

 

Special bracelets

We have two "special bracelets this year! You can purchase a "mulligan" bracelet for $5. This mulligan bracelet will allow you to redo a serve once per set. This will prevent a double fault, once per set. We are also offering a "do-over" bracelet for $5. This do-over bracelet will allow you to redo a point that was lost on your strings/racquet once during a set. This means that you are allowed to do-over any point in which you, not your opponent or partner, had an unforced error. You cannot use the do-over bracelet for your serve.

BGITA 4.0 Women's Team Competes in State Championship

 

The St. Simons 4.0 ladies made the road trip to Athens to play in the state USTA championships, the weekend of May 29-June 1.  And we all know what happens when you put "road trip" and "Athens" in the same sentence. . . a lot of fun was had, as well as some great tennis! We played five matches, and won three of them, against much bigger tennis programs (Atlanta, Macon, and Peachtree City). And we put up a good fight in the two that we lost. Special thanks to our traveling coach, Jimmy Parker, and to Georgia USTA for such a fun event!

BGITA President's Corner

2015 Tri-Level Info

How do you feel about change? Wary? Excited? Down right aggravated? We have some changes coming for BGITA league tennis this Spring. However, I promise it will still be the same size tennis courts, the same balls, and the same wonderful south Georgia weather! The first new league, with sign up starting on February 22nd, is called Tri-Level.

Here are the details:
Same gender doubles teams
3 lines of play
One team against another

Sound familiar??? So what's the difference? It's TRI-LEVEL, meaning eachline of doubles is a different level. For example, a team may be made up of 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 players playing another equally set up team. See... we have the opportunity to bring new players together and have more teams to play! What's great is that anyone can sign up and based upon the levels of players who sign up, we can stagger the teams to put together the most competition. AND... there are State and Sectional Championships available for our championship teams to go forth and continue to conquer! We can have NTRP levels between 2.5 to 4.5 players so encourage everyone you know to give this a try! If you have ANY questions at all please drop me an email or call and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

See you on the courts!
