Have you been looking for a way to play tennis more often? Are you tired of playing the same people? Do you find yourself wanting to meet more people like you? Do you want to help build a global tennis community?
Today, we will be introducing you guys to eTennis League, a platform for players of all levels to compete against each other for cash prizes and to improve their overall tennis skills. Make sure to check them out here! You can also follow them on social media!
What Is It?
eTennis League was founded in 2013 as a platform for players to get together to play tennis and improve their overall game. While it currently is only available to adults (18+), they are starting to introduce a junior program as well. Through their platform, participants will be able to communicate with each other, set up friendly matches, and find other tennis players who are around their same skill level. This allows you to create a community of tennis players within your city or town. Players may not be available everywhere, but if you want to play tennis, you can invite a couple of your friends to join the free service, and help introduce more of the world to the beautiful game of tennis.
Besides the platform — which is completely free to use — there are also competitive leagues, where players duke it out for cash prizes. The entry fee is $25 per person, and the winner will receive a trophy and $8 for every player competing in the league. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and make a bit of cash on the side (if you’re able to win). More details are available in the More Info section down below. Make sure to check it out!
They also have a blog which covers everything about the tennis world. Make sure to check that out as well! Link
Why Should You Participate?
Not only will you be able to play with your fellow athletes, but you’ll also be able to compete for cash prizes! At the end of the day though, it’s not about the money. It’s about the chance to meet new people, to make new friends, and to play tennis. Even if you’re in a big city, it’s often quite difficult to find people to play with, and you’ll find yourself playing with the same people over and over again, something that doesn’t exactly help you improve your game. By exposing yourself to new players who all have different techniques and different playing styles, you’ll be able to improve your game while meeting people who share the same interests as you.
Regarding the competitive eTennis leagues, they are available 4 times a year. They’re not available in every city due to not enough people being registered, but they are quickly expanding to more areas all around the US. Don’t worry, you won’t find yourself matched up with Roger Federer. All leagues will be divided according to skill level to ensure that players are not playing unfair matches.
Regarding the leagues, the participation fee is just $25 and in exchange, players are offered a lot of cool features and goodies. Some of them are:
1. All division winners get a cash prize (number of participants x $8) and a cool tennis trophy!
2. Flex schedule – each player gets a list of division participants and is free to schedule matches in accordance with other players’ schedules (no impose schedules) .
3. Players exchange messages, schedule matches, enter scores and rate oppone
nts through the platform.
4. The regular season play lasts 60 days and a player can play against the same opponent twice. All you need to do is win 5 sets (5 points) to qualify for the playoff.
5. Players have a way to earn money by inviting other players to take part in our league (we offer Affiliate and Ambassador programs to players who want to get involved and help us establish or develop local leagues).
6. In case we don’t manage to organize a league due to the lack of registered players, we make a full refund.
7. Division winners always send us their pictures with the prizes – they go up on our champion’s wall and we share it with the world through our social media accounts.
