http://www.tennisround.com/, a website connecting recreational tennis players nationwide, has added a tournament flavor to their player matching services.
Tennis leagues offer participants the opportunity to compete against other players in the area, submit match scores and gain ranking.
"We wanted to attract the more serious and influential players to the site. Usually higher rated tennis players are more accomplished in their game and bring a level of sophistication to each match," said Tennis Round's Chief Creative Officer Nikolay Tchaouchev.
Leagues attract more polished players and push everyone to do better. Though recognition is only virtual, and there are no monetary prizes, the real wins come from trying to play better and learn from better players.
"Take each rally a little bit more seriously and commit to every shot, that's the experience we want to add with leagues," said Martin Marinov, Tennis Round's Marketing Manager and active league player. "When I play in a tennis league I tend to be more focused on my shot selection and footwork."
Tennis leagues are run in a round robin format, which means each of the 6 players in a division get to play each other in the course of 6 weeks. They play one match per week and report scores to Tennis Round. Half of the matches are played at a player's home court and the rest are travel matches.
The 15 cities participating in Tennis Round's tennis leagues are: San Francisco, CA, Seattle, WA, Austin, TX, New York, NY, Houston, TX, Los Angeles, CA, Oakland, CA, New Orleans, LA, Chicago, IL, Tucson, AZ, Philadelphia, PA, San Diego, CA, Washington, DC, Denver, CO, Atlanta, GA.
