Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
When and where is the next Pine Tree Apple Tennis Classic (PTATC)?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are modifying this year's format following guidance from federal and state health agencies. Consistent with the USTA’s “play local” theme, we are holding the tournament over a three week period with matches played at a local park or club of the players’ choosing. Each round will be scheduled in one week increments to allow flexibility of date/time and location for the two teams playing. The tournament will begin on Friday, July 17, 2020 and culminate in live streaming of the Finals for all three draws on Sunday, August 9, 2020. Division draws with match updates will be posted on our website and social channels.
