What it Means…
For those who live in SW Florida, it means we have lost both Colonial (Ft. Myers) and Sterling Oaks (Naples, CAT II); but the people in the Sarasota area benefit by now having four tournaments (and the Florida Cup) in their area + the St. Pete CAT II not too far away.
I know it is a challenge; but it is a shame that no other SW Florida clubs were willing to take on a tournament, because not many Collier players will be willing to make the daily drive north to play + it messes up the northerners who come down to rent and play.
Mark Taylor, USTA Florida, Florida Cup Commissioner, says that any questions about the series should go directly to him at CatsCane@aol.com
