$750 Per Team.

This event is intended to be enjoyable with a focus on fun rather than intense competition. Please no teaching professionals and players ranked higher than 4.5, and no teams with combined rankings exceeding 13.0.

Full day of play, player's gift, complimentary lunch and beverages during the tournament, after-party and a generous donation to support pediatric cancer research.


Each team consists of 3 players. These 3 players are your team the entire tournament. Kindly follow the skill level criteria outlined above to ensure fair competition. Each game has 3 versus 3 players. A feeder feeds a ball to one side of the Tennis court to start the point. After every point, each player rotates counter clockwise. At 11 points, the players swap sides. This gives each team a chance at the feed side. The goal is to be first to 21 points (win by 2).

It is a very quick paced game to 21. The points are moving fast. Once the ball is fed into play, all players can move anywhere on the court. There are no restrictions on who can take what shot or where you stand on your side of the court. Triples is a blast!

This year, KATE KUP is introducing an exciting new change to our format. As we focus on streamlining to a fun and convenient, single-day event, we will be jumping into the festivities immediately following the tournament from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Celebrate with us at our new and exciting Players Awards After Party, where we'll honor our champions with an awards ceremony, indulge in complimentary food and cocktails, and offer exciting raffle prizes and auctions.


Whether you're still in your costumes or sweaty from the competition, go from serving up points on the court to serving up hope and support for children fighting cancer. Join us for a party filled with fun and purpose, as we come together to make a difference and create unforgettable memories!
