    2013 WACTA Minor League Team Tournament Concludes


    Minor League Tournament


    October 26, 2013

    First Annual WACTA Minor League Team Tournament Concluded on October 26

    Four jonior teams and four adult teams competed in the first annual WACTA Minor League Team Tournament. As a complementary event to the famous WACTA Team Tennis Series, the Minor League tournament attracted more than 30 junior and adult players.

    Junior Players

    All the kids had a fun evening. After competing hard on the court, they enjoyed cookies, chips, fruits and halloween treats. A few of them also helped making lemonade for the rest of us. Special thanks to team captains for organizing the teams, and providing court-side coaching: Jeff Zhu; Lindi Wang; Xiaofeng Ou; Li Wang; Vincent Pang.

    Junior Champions

    Do you know that Pandas can fly? The Flying Panda was certainly flying high on the night. They beat all the other three teams, including the equally strong Rainbow Unicorns, to clinch the championship. The team was captained and coached by Jeff Zhu (left) and Lindi Wang (not in photo). Team members are (from left to right): Ted Zhou; Daniel Wen; Lawrence Zhu and Jackie Zhu.

    Adult Champions

    The adults enjoyed their night too. Players from Rockville and Herndon Hope Chinese schools, as well as students in the WACTA tennis clinics loved the event and wanted to do it again. The Weekend Aces, captained by Dan Yu, outplayed the other teams to bring home the championship trophy. The Weekend Aces team members (from right to left): Dan Yu; Chris Ji; Liufang Qin; Kevin Hou. We want to thank all the team captains for their efforts in managing their teams and helping make the event a success: Dan Yu; Hong Zhang; Jeff Gu; Alan Leung; Eugene Wang.

    First Annual WACTA "Minor League" Team Tournament‏

    10/26/2013 7:00 pm
    10/26/2013 11:59 pm

    Dear Members and Friends,

    Many of you may already know that we started our annual Team Tennis Series (TTS) last Saturday. While the TTS has attracted many good players to compete at a relatively higher level, we want to also provide playing opportunities to players who are not ready to participate in TTS. Hence, the new "Minor League" Team Tournament.

    Some questions and answers about this tournament:

    What is "Minor League" Team Tournament?
    It's a team-based tournament that resembles the popular Team Tennis Series, with slightly modified format. There will be a Junior tournament for players under the age of 14, and an adult tournament. The purpose of the tournament is to provide beginner-to-intermediate players an opportunity to compete with people at similar skill level, and to make friends with fellow tennis fans in the WACTA community.

    When and where is the tournament?
    Saturday October 26, 2013. Junior tournament runs from 7 PM to 9:30 PM. Adult tournament runs from 9:30 PM to midnight. As other WACTA tennis tournaments, it's hosted at Four Seasons Tennis Club in Merrifield, VA.

    Who qualifies to play in this tournament?
    For the junior tournament, anyone meeting the following criteria:
    (1) age 14 and below.
    (2) Has not been on any TTS team roster.
    (3) With a WACTA rating (or self-rating if does not have WACTA rating) of 3.5 or below.

    For the adult tournament, anyone meeting the following criteria:
    (1) Has not been on any TTS team roster.
    (2) With a WACTA rating (or self-rating if does not have WACTA rating) of 3.5 or below.

    How many teams will compete in the tournament?
    Four junior teams and four adult teams.

    What is the format of the tournament?
    (1) Four teams play round robin matches. Each team will play against the other three teams once.
    (2) Each team match consists of two individual doubles matches: Open 1 and Open 2. An "Open" doubles match means the doubles team can be two male, two female, or one male and one female player.
    (3) Each individual match will be in 12-game no-ad format.
    (4) Detailed tournament rules will be published and distributed.

    How are the teams formed?
    We encourage players to from teams among themselves. Teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register your team, email secretary@wacta.org with the following information. We also encourage parents to captain junior teams.
    (1) Team Name
    (2) Captain information: name, email address, cell phone number.
    (3) Indicate whether it's a junior team or an adult team.

    How many players do I need if I want to captain a team?
    Minimum of four (4) players, and maximum of eight (8) players. Teams are allowed to switch players after each match. If you don't have enough players, we will try our best to help you recruit for your team.

    I want to participate, but I don't have a team. How can I find a team to join?
    Email secretary@wacta.org, with some basic information of yourself (gender, age, self-assessed skill level, etc.), and we will forward your information to team captains. Since there are limited number of teams accepted, and limited number of players on each team, we cannot guarantee that everyone will be accepted by a team

    Are there rewards for the winning teams?
    In addition to bragging rights, the winning team in each tournament (Junior and Adult) will get to take home the championship cup for one year. The cups are to be returned to WACTA and to be passed onto next year's winning teams.

    Who are the ideal participants for this tournament?
    (1) Students currently or previously enrolled in WACTA tennis clinics
    (2) Students who had taken classes in Chinese Schools and have been practicing with friends.
    (3) Anyone who wants to improve their skills and gain match-play experience, and at the same time enjoy an energetic and friendly tennis environment.

    What is the cost of this tournament?
    Registration fee is $60 per team. Since this is a WACTA event benefitting its members, an extra $5 will be charged for each non-member player. Non-member players can choose to join WACTA if they meet WACTA membership requirements (see WACAT website for membership details: http://www.wacta.org/home/membershipview).

    I hope I have covered the basic information on this tournament. If you have any additional question, please feel free to email me at secretary@wacta.org. Please help spread the word by forwarding this email to people you think may be interested.

    Thank you,

    Jing Gu

    2013 WACTA Family Summer Camp Recap

    President Ken Chen's recap of 2013 WACTA Summber Family Camp at Wintergreen Resort:

    Dear Friends,

    Our first summer camp at Wintergreen was a great success! We all had great times, the whether, the air, the mountain, the lake, the picnic, the zip-line, the volleyball games, hiking, swimming, tubing, rock-climbing, Spa, hot tub, golf and, of course, tennis,

    We had the most fun with the beach volleyball, which reminded us of our college days. Almost everyone participated in the game. After three hours of match, team from David Zhang's house won the championship. Kids seem really like the volleyball. They played two matches on their own. All of them them got a nice suntan.

    The summer camp doubles tournament had 12 teams and competed for two days. The championship match between Jeff Zhu/ Richard Wang and Peiyi Liu / James Liu was breathtaking, James' powerful serve, Richard's top-spin lop, Jeff's lightening forehand shot, Peiyi's impossible save, long rallies and smart drop shots made us watching on side felt like in the first row of Roland Garros. Eventually the championship was won by James and Peiyi. Bill and John Qu beat Shujiang Wang / Kevin Zhan to win the third place.

    Many of us have also experience cloud tennis! While we were in the playoffs of the camp tournament on Saturday, patches of cloud suddenly descended from the trees, gradually filled up the tennis courts and transformed the surrounding into a fantasy world. The balls became heavier and disappeared into the air. We were surprised but very excited.

    Many parents followed Linda to Wintergreen Winery where they tasted eight different wines and bought many bottles they liked,
    Kids at all age had fun the day at the Discovery Ridge, Not only young kids enjoyed the zip-lone, tubing and rock climbing, older kids like James Liu, Ken Chen , Shujiang Wang, Richard Wang, Hong Zhang, Iris Fan, and Jie Shen all got excited with them too. Jie rode the zip-line four times, probably the most among all kids,

    John Xiang led a few golf lover on the green for Friday. , They practiced at the drive range all day Saturday with unlimited balls for just $15. What a steal!

    Jim Wang lead a group of four families to a hiking trail on Sunday. It's mile long round trip down the hill to a waterfall. Once we got into the woods, something deeply hidden in my body was revived. I wish I brought a book so that I can read it by the small creek or brought cards so that we can play on the stone by the creek, According the Jim, it was the easiest trail, but it was still hard on us. Like little Brian said " Mom, hiking make me sweet more "

    Wintergreen has so much to offer, we hardly enjoyed half of them. Many of you have told us that the three-day camp is too short and want to come back next year. We'll definitely try to organize another one next year and will keep everyone living close to each other.
    Jeff Zhang have posted many photos to WACTA page on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/wacta/. Please take a look and let Jeff Zhang know if you want a copy. You are also welcome to share your pictures there.

    Finally, We'd like to thank Yu Zhang for directing the volleyball tournament, Linda Zhang for leading the wine tasting, Jame Liu for the fun at the Discovery ridge, John Xiang for golf group and Jim Wang for hiking tour. Our camp can't be successful without those volunteers,

    Thanks

    Mindy, Jing and Ken
