  • College coaches will select a team match that members of the local community are encouraged to attend.
  • Food and refreshments will be provided for all attending.
  • Fans will be encouraged to participate in a variety of promotional activities such as raffles, contests, racquet stenciling, autograph signings, clinics, etc.
