On April 24, the Saw Mill Club was host to the first Southern Region Interclub QuickStart Jr. Team Tennis event.  Four USTA Eastern member organizations participated: Saw Mill Club, Solaris Club, Club Fit-Jefferson Valley and the Jerry Alleyne Foundation.  Each team consisted of 10 players: four 10-and-under players on the 60-foot court and six 8-and-under players on the 36-foot court.

Play for the 40 participants strictly adhered to the QuickStart format using the red and orange balls. Sportsmanship was stressed, and by the end of the 2 hours of play enthusiasm was at its peak.
