Due to a renovation of Yale Tennis Center in the summer of 2019, the DTS College Prospects Showcase/Yale will be held at the Mercer Country Park Tennis Center in West Windsor, NJ (near Princeton). Participants will play 3 singles and 2 doubles matches over two days, all of which are 8-game pro-sets. For the 2019 event, boys will play on June 25 and the first half of June 26, and girls will play the second half of June 26 and all day June 27.
Players wishing to apply can submit the online registration starting February 15, 2019. The registration fee is $550 (clients get a 50% discount). Eighty girls and eighty boys will be selected from a field of applicants that is typically well above the number of spaces available. We therefore are not able to accept all applicants, and request that non-refundable travel plans not be made until you have received a formal e-mail acceptance letter from DTS. If the number of entries exceeds the limit, factors used to select players will be:
- Whether the player is a DTS College Recruitment Consulting client.
- The player’s TRN ranking and UTR.
- The player’s year in school (rising seniors will be given priority over rising sophomores and juniors).
Players not accepted will have their entry fee refunded.
College coaches will receive a packet containing a short bio on each player, including their Tennis Recruiting Network (TRN) ranking and rating, Universal Tennis Rating (UTR), grades and test scores, among other things. This information will be available to college coaches only and will otherwise be kept confidential.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity!
