One Day Tennis Tournaments

One of the biggest drawbacks of entering a tennis tournament is just how much time it can consume. Players can spend the entire weekend, and sometimes more, playing in a tournament.

A one day tournament is a great way to attract time strapped, and short attention span players (like myself). A one day tournament is identical to a regular tournament, but it comprises of playing multiple mini matches throughout the day.

The match format of the mini matches depends on the size of the tournament. For example, a tournament with 8 teams would use a 8-game pro-set. This is because in an 8 team tournament, the maximum amount of matches that a team can play is three. This means a team must win three, 8-game pro-set mini matches to win the tournament. This is an achievable amount of tennis for a day, considering there may be long breaks between each match. For larger bracket sizes, you would want smaller size matches. Perhaps best 3 out of 5 games.

I would love to see some of these one day tennis tournaments here at the GTN, and would love to hear your ideas. It is a such a simple concept, and I really think it could catch on.
