04/24/12 – Post Season Instructions

April 24, 2012 Tennis Blog Updates

Good morning, The sun is bright and it looks like another great day to play Tennis. I can’t believe we are getting ready for our post season tournaments. Many of you veterans know that the information for post season play ( regional and state) can be found on our web site:  http://www.khsaa.org/tennis/ . For those of you who are new to the coaching ranks, please make yourself familiar with our Tennis page and the different links to Tournament instructions and forms. You will also find helpful links to maps and the schedule of events for the State Championships. I’m excited to announce that the State Championships will have a new site for Thursday’s play. As you know on the first day of play, due to the large number of matches, we divide our tournament field by gender and have one group at UK, with the other group playing at an alternative site, then on Friday, we bring everyone to the UK complex. This year we will be using the City of Lexington’s Tennis Complex at Shillito Park for this purpose. They have recently resurfaced the 13 court complex and with its close proximity to the University, we feel this will improve our tournament for both the teams and their fan base. Please take the time to read the instructions, even if you are a veteran coach, there are changes that you need to be aware of. Let me also take this time to say Thank You to the Sayre School for their support of our Tennis Championships over the past few years by making their tennis complex available to our use.
