SPRING 2023 BOYS VARSITY SEASON WRAP UP

For those unfamiliar with tennis at the varsity level, here is a brief explanation. A varsity roster consists of 10 players, four singles players and three doubles teams. If there are more than 10 players on a team, they may play exhibition matches if the opposing team and time can accommodate. When it comes to scoring, only the results from the seven matches played by those in the top 10 are counted towards the team match. The winning team is declared by securing four of the matches.

As with many sports there is both a regular and postseason. For the tennis postseason, there are team events, sectionals, state qualifiers (regionals) and the New York State Championships, among others. Our club trains players from almost every school in the area, as well as outside the Binghamton area. Each school’s population determines its competitive class. After the regular season has completed, a tournament is held for each class. The top three singles players and doubles teams advance to the state qualifiers. Only the top three in the singles and doubles events advance on to Flushing, New York to play for the New York State Championships. Each school can only enter six participants at the sectional level, two singles players and two doubles teams. Depending on how many schools are in a specific class, players can expect to have to win a minimum of three matches in a row to make it to the state qualifiers. The sectional event is single elimination.

In the state qualifiers, players again need to win a minimum of three matches to advance, although it is a double elimination event. This time, players are up against the top competition as the brackets are populated with the best from each class. Only the top three continue on to represent the best of Section IV at the USTA Billy Jean King National Tennis Center, host of the US Open.

We are proud to highlight our junior boys that participated in this year’s postseason:

INDOOR COURT PROJECT TO BEGIN JUNE 26

Our six indoor courts will be undergoing a transformation and major upgrade. The indoor courts will go off-line beginning Monday, June 26 and remain offline until mid-August. This project will include court leveling and resurfacing, NCAA/USTA approved court layouts with expanded baselines and sidelines, new posts/nets and new vinyl wall coverings. Don’t be surprised to see new court furniture and some odes to our favorite Bearcat!

 

During this period, all scheduled programming (camps, clinics, leagues, lessons, open time, etc.) will take place on the nine new outdoor courts. Reservations will be updated accordingly. Weather will be a larger consideration in play this summer so please plan accordingly for heat and or precipitation. We will do our best to communicate frequently with updates and any potential changes based on weather predictions and/or project progress. As always, when in doubt, please feel free to call the club with any questions or concerns.

 

This project is no small undertaking and we realize there will be some challenges, but we also know what a huge impact new indoor courts will have for our teams, members and programs. We change to be better!

VESTIBULE CLOSED , USE SIDE ENTRANCE

Beginning this Monday, June 19, the vestibule and main entrance to the center will be offline. This project will include setting a new vestibule foundation, making the entrance ADA compliant, rebuilding the existing portico and installing new glass doors.

While the project is active, access to the center will be through the side door, facing the new outdoor courts.  Once inside the workshop area, members should proceed through the appropriate locker room door, men’s room to the left and women’s room to the right.  The doors will be marked appropriately. We ask that you please close the locker room doors behind you. Locker rooms will remain open for member use.   

 

We expect this project to take approximately three weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the center.​
