Girls at Billings Mayfair Tournament

The Billings Mayfair tournament allows our teams to solidify our doubles pairs and test our singles each year before the divisional seeding tournament the following weekend. The team setup is different than regular duels with only 2 singles slots and an instead of 3 doubles slots, they play 4. This allows the normal 10 player roster to finish a duel in 6 matches instead of 7, but with less singles matches. To make things quicker still, play starts at 2-2 in the first two sets to 6, then a 10 point tiebreaker in lieu of a third set. This way we get in 6 duels in 2 days, which is great for the players to see lots of different opponents and get many chances at fresh matches.

Our girls team has been strong for as long as I’ve been a part of the program. Lilly Reddick and Brooke Gilbertson have been solid performers on our doubles side and showed some tough teams they’re right up there with the best in the state.

On the singles side, Eliza McLaughlin and Hanna Stokke have emerged as a tough 1-2 pair, and had some excellent showings against tough opponents. Angelina Chandler also had chances this weekend at #2 singles and showed us she could hang right with our opposition.
