This event, created by tennis legend Billie Jean King, who also founded World TeamTennis San Diego (Aviators compete at that level), brings together co-ed teams of promising junior players from many different sections of the United States.
One key distinction of this competition is that none of the players can be ranked in the Top 150 of the United States Tennis Association Seed Selection List.
The age range for the competition is 14-18 years old.
Last year, two San Diego teams finished in the Top 6, with the Barnes Bashes ultimately losing in the championship match and the San Diego Attackers losing the fifth-place match.
King will lead offcourt seminars and oncourt practice sessions for participants for the duration of the event.
Admission and parking for the sporting event are free.
Seminars are open only to participants.
The Barnes Tennis Center is located at 4490 W. Point Loma Blvd.
