Description: NYJTL will host the Hartman Cup, over a three week period in March marking the culmination of the Winter Early Morning Program (WEMP). During the 20 week session, student’s as young as young as 6 - 18 year’s old get up as early as 5:00am in the morning on weekends to travel to one of our sites to play tennis from 6 – 8 am. Approximately 200 boys and girls will compete in four different age divisions – 12’s, 14’s ,16’s and 18’s at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club and at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, Queens. In addition, 9 & 10 year old’s will be invited to participate in a more “friendly” tournament designed by the USTA. For many of these students, it will be the first time they will compete in a tournament against their peers and play at one of the most prestigious stadiums in tennis history, home of the US Open. The Hartman Cup is also a team event with players accumulating team points for the sites for which they play at all season long, giving the athlete’s an opportunity to learn to be part of a team. The Hartman Cup will be presented to the winning team at the Final’s and Awards Ceremony on March 24th.
