Missouri Valley Fall Invite 2012

While the pros were playing in Asia, the past weekend saw play much closer to home with the 2012 Missouri Valley Fall Tennis on Campus Invite! University of Oklahoma from MoValley Fall Invite

Sixteen teams from eight states descended upon the Plaza Tennis Center in Kansas City, MO.  There was plenty of great tennis as several schools outside of the Missouri Valley Section competed including the University of Arkansas, University of Colorado and University of Illinois. 

Teams were placed in four pools of four.  Winning teams from each pool were placed in the “Gold Bracket”, 2nd place teams from each pool were placed in the “Silver Bracket”, 3rd place teams from each pool were placed in the “Bronze Bracket”, and 4th place teams from each pool were placed in the “Copper Bracket.” Since each “bracket” played off for 3rd/4th, this guaranteed every team an additional match on Sunday, allowing every team in the event to play 5 team matches!
