Any prizes for advancing in playoffs?
This is my first year in the playoffs. Just wondering if the regional sections provide anything for teams that make it or advance? We just won local playoffs and the prize was 10 sham-wow like towels. No joke, that was the gift, and only 10, not enough for the whole team. Is there something for sectionals? nationals?

Yeah the USTA District Champion towels are sort of cool, at least mine was until Dennis GOATed all over it one drunken night at J011y's apartment.

usually the gifts are reserved for only the winners. So if you would like more than to share a towel ... then win sectionals. Just do not look for anything better than part of a hat (which is still the best 'award' I have gotten from the USTA)

cup for playoffs, towel for sectionals, crystal trophy of a tennis ball for nationals

For winning regionals recently, we each got a small acrylic trophy. I'd get more use out of a hat. They also pay our entry fee for Nationals, but we still need to pay for travel and lodging (about $800).

For combo last year we got a white tag for going to states, a red tag for winning states and a glass trophy of a tennis ball sitting on a glass cube for winning sectionals.

(no nationals for combo)

I believe you get a voucher for some personal satifsfaction that can be picked up at the gift shop.
