    The upcoming Tennis Channel Open is having some interesting events including a fast server contest and a shotgun 21 event in which both males and females compete *together* for a chance a winning a qualifier spot in this Open. Its bascially table tennis since it remove the overhand serve. This is ofcourse one of the biggest of the male advantages so here is a chance for the ladies to prove thier groundies are as good or better then the mens.

    Maybe Venus will enter ;)

    Anybody ever play this type of tournament ?

    The website mentioned that the famous Palasades club in S.Cal holds such a tournament every year. Any Palasades members ? I heard that this club allowed 4.5 or better members. Wonder if this is still true ?
