LIPTA  Party LIPTA was proud to host the 2009 APTA Junior National Championships. Mark Brosnan - Tournament Director had a vision and plan for this tournament, and executed it to perfection. The tournament kicked off Friday evening January 30th at the brand new USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The evening featured platform tennis clinics conducted by Long Island Professionals, the clinics, in addition to teaching, were great fun for all the kids who took part. Next were demonstration matches played by the 2008 Junior National Champions, followed by matches featuring Nationally ranked Men's and Women's Teams. Over 200 parents and children attended this event.

The Championships got underway on Saturday January 31st, with virtually every court on Long Island being used. 95 teams entered, with teams coming from as far as Pittsburgh, PA and Hamilton, Ma. LIPTA would like to thank all the volunteers, and there were many, without whom this event could not have been the success that it was. LIPTA would also like to thank the clubs and their members who so graciously made their courts available for this event. LIPTA would be remiss not to again recognize Mark Brosnan for the effort and dedication he put forth in making this event a success.

Worthy of mention is the fine etiquette and sportsmanship displayed by all players.
