[tennisbiz] Re: High school tennis seasons

From: Tim Coleman <>

End of the season high school competition in Michigan: High
School Teams are divided into divisions by their high school
enrollments. These divisions are divided into 8-12 regionals
throughout the state. 8-12 teams compete in each regional.
The top two teams or a team accumulating 18 points in a 16 draw
goes to the next level of competition the state finals (4 -
1 for each division). The high school teams are 8 flights
(12 players: 1-4 Singles and 1-4 Doubles from each school).
At the state finals the team with the most points is the state
champion for that division. On the individual side, a #1
singles getting to the finals at the regionals also qualifies
for the state tournament. So the best players from weaker
teams (schools that did not qualify) can qualify and play
against the teams and other #1 singles qualifiers at the state
tournament. The players only compete against others at their flight.
I think this is the best of both worlds - individual competition
within a team format.

Having both teams (girls and boys) mandated into one season
instead of our Girls in the fall and Boys in the spring would
be a giant step back in our evolution of high school tennis
in Michigan. Court time is at a premium now with separate
seasons - it would become prohibitive to combine both teams
into one season! I am hopeful that the court case to mandate
the single season will fail. This court case is trying to
move all like sports (example: basketball - girls and boys;
soccer - girls and boys) to one season.
