Adult Beginner Divisions: Entry-level divisions are noted as USTA levels (2.5/3.0). USTA description of a 2.5 player: "This player is learning to judge where the oncoming ball is going and how much swing is needed to return it consistently. Movement to the ball and recovery are often not efficient. Can sustain a backcourt rally of slow pace with other players of similar ability and is beginning to develop strokes. This player is becoming more familiar with the basic positions for singles and doubles, and is ready to play social matches, leagues and low-level tournaments."
Why play beginner divisions?: You may not have played a tournament before, or you just like hitting for fun. The Tri-County event gives you an opportunity to play & meet new people, gain experience, and have a good time with a large group of like-minded tennis enthusiasts. You can play without the worry you are going to face a significantly more experienced player
