IMPORTANT: COVID-19 UPDATE 8.20.21
KATE KUP Weekend is being postponed. We are saddened by this delay and have wrestled with this decision but believe it is the best one at this time. We have been closely monitoring the current COVID-19 surge and hospitalization rates in the Jacksonville area. We also have consulted with local hospital officials and city officials to obtain current data and guidance. The Delta variant is more highly contagious, has been spreading throughout our city for several weeks, appears to be affecting children more significantly than previous strains, and has placed an enormous burden on our hospital system across the board. This week, Jacksonville hospitals are at 99% capacity and 93% ICU bed capacity. Wolfson Children’s Hospital is at 97% capacity, which means there are only 15 beds available to treat a child in the event of illness or injury. And, in the first week of school, both Duval County and St. Johns County school districts are reporting an escalating number of positive cases among students and faculty every day. READ MORE »

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.
