Kate Kup

The KATE KUP Triples Tennis Tournament is postponed until the Spring of 2021.  While we are deeply disappointed with this decision, we make it with respect to our participants, volunteers and spectators.  It is important that we are considerate of both the health concerns and financial hardships that many families and businesses are currently facing.  As always, we will continue to take our cues from Kate and use this time to help others safely and we will work that much harder to make the KATE KUP 2021 better than ever!! We hope you will join us in the Spring when we can come together to celebrate, play, compete and fundraise for pediatric cancer research. Your spots are reserved and we will be in touch with additional information as it becomes available.

How To Play

Each team consists of 3 players. These 3 players are your team the entire tournament. 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. Take a look at the video example to see first-hand triples play.
