World Team Tennis New York Empire matches starts July 15, 2018-
USTA Billie Jean King National tennis Center.
The New York Empire is a World TeamTennis team that plays its home matches at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York City, New York.
Originally played on a no-line court, each match consists of five sets. Each set features a different configuration (men's singles, men's doubles, women's singles, women's doubles, and mixed doubles).
Prior to each match, coaches decide the order in which the sets will be played. Each player on a team usually plays in at least one of the five sets. Scoring is no-advantage; there is no requirement to win a game by two scores; at deuce (3–3, the equivalent of 40–40 in a conventional scoring system), whoever scores the next point wins the game.
The first team to reach five games wins each set. A nine-point tiebreaker is played if a set reaches four-all. One point is awarded for each game won. If necessary, overtime and a super-tiebreaker are played to determine the winner of the match.
SCJTL welcomes the New York Empre back to to its second season in Queens at the USTA BJK National Tennis Center.
I encourage everyone to experience this unique, annual world class tennis event. The 2018 NY Empire season features 3 weeks of exciting team tennis played right here in our neighborhood by some of the top men and women tennis players in the world including franchise players John Isner, Genie Bouchard and Mardy Fish, who are all returning to the Empire for the second straight year. International Tennis Hall of Famer Gigi Fernandez will also return to coach the Empire.
Take the family out to a fun night of team tennis on the US Open courts.
See you at the National Tennis Center!
