    OK,

    As inspired within the SoCal Mens Open thread, I am starting the first TT Cup.

    The contest will be between East Coast, and West Coast board members for bragging rights (Sponsorship and prizes are in the works). If you wish to join in TT Cup competition all you must do is submit your name and the coast which you are representing. If your state is obviously on the East or West coast then you must join that team. (International players are not eligible for this team, but a future world cup one can be fabricated, in the future, so if you would like to organize a team for your country and can muster at least 12 board members to represent it, then please form a team.) If it is not a clear cut thing, you may choose your team. Please indicate your playing level and preferance to singles or doubles.

    Each coast will have 12 players to compete + additional bench players.

    The format will be 6 singles matches, and 3 doubles matches. 5/9 wins the cup.

    Once we get a good amount of players on each team, we will vote for captains.

    East Coast.

    You are in, bring on the rest of the southeast contingent, and I will round up the Nor-Easters, and we will push them Kalifurnians into the Pacific Ocean.

    Is this real? When / where do you propose it to take place?

    ^^^ Yeah, it's real. A bunch of guys from the boards have been setting up local meetings from guys in their own area. 5 of us from south florida met up last weekend. You could see a bunch of photos here:

    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=129762

    Kaptain karl is trying to get people from the Colorada area to meet up, and zapvor is working on getting a hit together in the Mid Atlantic. Granite is working on getting a bunch of people from Cali together as well.

    So, we are all going to try and meet up. East vs. West!

    If we could get this set up, it would be awesome.

    I know zptennis is in Central Florida. He posts from time to time. Strong player> big kick serve. I think he is a 5.0.

    I suppose............I think distance-wise it's closer to the west though.

    Dependant on where you have this "showdown" I may be able to go.

    Hey JO11, just a thought but maybe you should ask the mods to move this thread to the odds and ends. It may get more views in that section.

    Are you setting a DC here? :)

    I doubt it would work. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that at least half of you guys who signed manages to meet in US, but I know how it goes...4 of us here are having trouble meeting in a same city cause of school/jobs/exams/other activities.... and what you're trying to set is a National event! Or intercontinental :)

    We could beat you on ANY surface. Don't even DREAM on taking us down on clay, and I wouldn't mind playing on carpet or syn grass either :D

    We're a very balanced, all-surface team, and hungry of victory! :D

    I nominate Jo11yroger. He has taken the lead starting this thread so who better to lead the East Team?? He also gets along with everyone on the boards (except AJK1). But neither does anyone else. :)

    It is a theoretical thing, pick whichever coast you want and I will add you to the roster.
