The Peach will be held over Labor Day weekend, and match play will be Saturday, August 31 through Monday, September 2. Match play will be as early as 8am and as late as 11pm for each day, except for Monday. Depending on weather and other factors, we hope to have all matches completed by 5pm Monday. Players are expected to be available at all times during the tournament. (IMPORTANT NOTES: Just like last year, we are NOT playing on Friday this year. We are also playing matches at Piedmont Park again this year.)
In addition to the regular single-elimination main draws, we will offer consolation brackets for first-match losers in ALL events that are not round robin. The Peach is one of the very few GLTA tournaments where consolation brackets are available for men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles events, in addition to the singles events. Winners and finalists of the main draw will receive our prestigious Peach trophies. The winner of the consolation events will also receive an award.
The registration fee includes: 1) Friday night draw party, 2) a long weekend of tennis, 3) player goodie bag including a Peach t-shirt, 4) Sunday banquet and 5) a chance to win The Peach trophies.
The cost structure is as follows:
One event: $110
Two events: $125
Three events: $140
All entries must be paid in full by the registration deadline.
40+ age divisions will be capped at 8 players.
Register and pay by the early bird deadline July 14 and receive $15 off your entry fee. Full-time students receive a 33% discount. Please mention your student status in the “Remarks” field of the registration and we will send a separate payment link.
Please note, your entry is not complete until all payments are received in full. We will issue a full refund if you withdraw by August 16, and no refunds will be issued thereafter.
If you enter any division that is full with a waiting list, please tell us if you would like to play an alternate event if space is not available in your first choice (e.g. MS B 40+ is full, you can join the waiting list, but are willing to play MS B instead).
Guests are welcome at all events; for the banquet, there is a $40 guest fee to attend.
