The USTA Girls’ 18
National Championships
The Premier Tennis Event for
American Girls in the United States
The USTA Girls’ 18 National Championships is the premiere
hard court tennis tournament for amateur and professional
American girls aged 18-and-under in the United States. At
stake is the title of National Champion and with it, a Wild
Card entry into the US Open. In addition to crowning the
National Champions, the Maureen Connolly Brinker Award
is given to the most outstanding player for the season.
Sponsored by the Maureen Connolly Brinker Foundation
and named after “Little Mo,” the first woman to win a Grand
Slam, the honor encompasses not only quality of play, but
sportsmanship and competitive spirit.

Unlike most tennis tournaments, the girls who play The
Nationals have been endorsed to be here by their USTA                         Gail Brodsky of Bronx, NY was the

USTA because of their results in qualifying tournaments, high USTA junior rankings and successes on the WTA Tour and
International Tennis Federation Junior Circuit. They are the cream of the crop - the most outstanding performers for the
past year. Truly, the FUTURE OF AMERICAN TENNIS will be on the courts of the Berkeley Tennis Club and Claremont
Resort & Spa.

                         The Berkeley Tennis Club Foundation
                         Our History, Our Mission
                         For years, local tennis fans dreamed of bringing tennis of the highest level to Berkeley and Oakland
         BTCF
                         for all to share. The dream became a reality in 2007 when the Berkeley Tennis Club and Claremont
                         Resort & Spa first co-hosted the USTA Girls’ 18 National Championships. During the past two years,
                         the tournament has been a huge success due to the passion and commitment of the volunteers and
sponsors! Praise came from all corners of the community, from a commendation by the Berkeley and Oakland City Councils,
to recognition of our excellence by two national USTA Presidents.

2008 marked the end of a two-year transition from the organization that previously served as the charitable arm of the
tournament to the Berkeley Tennis Club Foundation (BTC Foundation). BTC Foundation was formed in 2007 as a California
public benefit 501(c)(3) corporation to promote tennis through competitions and education. Like its predecessor who
donated $5,000 out of the proceeds of the 2008 Nationals, it will contribute to local organizations that provide sporting
opportunities to children and disabled persons. And also like its predecessor, BTC Foundation has partnered with the
volunteer base and management at Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort & Spa to organize the 2009 tournament.
The clubs have again embraced the event and all are anticipating a another marquee year.

           The BTC Foundation Board of Directors are comprised of Steve Cornell, B.J. Miller and John Schelling.


The Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort & Spa
Host Facilities & Volunteer Base of the 2009 Nationals
The Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort & Spa are rich
with history and tradition of world class tennis. Pictured at right
are BTCs courts in the shadow of the grand Claremont Resort.
The Berkeley Tennis Club was founded in 1906 and is the only 100
year+ club in Northern California. Its membership has included
Grand Slam Champions from many eras including Helen Wills
Moody, Don Budge, and Billie Jean King. The setting of Berkeley
Tennis Club beneath the breathtaking Claremont Resort & Spa
makes it a unique setting for junior tournament tennis. The Resort,
built in 1915, is an historic landmark and provides a relaxing setting
for tournament play, the College Coaches’ Forum, and for guests to
conveniently stay during the tournament week. The Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort & Spa are committed to
the promotion of tennis excellence and are proud to be bringing the highest level of junior competition in the United States to
the cities of Berkeley and Oakland.
                                         The Tournament Committee will be lead by Chairwoman Lynne Rolley and Director
                                         Andrea Norman. Lynne, the director of tennis at BTC and member of the USTA NorCal
                                         Hall of Fame, brings her years as a coach of high-performance players and as the
                                         former Director of Women’s Tennis for the USTA to the success of the event. Andrea
                                         has served as Director since 1999 and her involvement with tennis also stretches to the
                                         national USTA level. Joining the tournament team is a group of committed volunteers
                                         comprising the Tournament Steering Committee, chaired by a past president of the
                                         Berkeley Tennis Club, Kay Lyman. The Chairman, Director and Steering Committee
                                         work closely with the Claremont staff, including its Director of Tennis, Rosie Bareis,
                                         the Director of the Spa and the Club, Kevin MacDonald, and the Director of Catering
                                         and Conference Services, Kathy Marty, to coordinate the partnership between the two
                                         clubs. Over 200 additional volunteers from Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont
                                         Resort & Spa are expected to donate their time and talent to the event.
The 2009 Nationals:

the future of American tennis against the backdrop

College Coaches’ Forum
Facilitating Opportunities for College Scholarships
The highlight of Registration Day at The Nationals is the College
Coaches’ Forum. Eligible players - those that have completed
their junior year in high school - receive exposure to college
coaches for scholarships and participating coaches enjoy the
organized atmosphere that aids them in recruitment. Eighty
coaches representing the top NCAA tennis programs in the country
participated in the 2008 Forum (asterisked schools) and additional
12 were on site from non-participating schools to recruit.

In an ongoing effort to improve the Forum for players and coaches, in 2002 the Nationals introduced a special area on
its website to assist players in educating themselves about the recruitment process. Links to the NCAA website, a list of
colleges participating in the Forum and a sample player resume were all posted to the website. In 2003, a “Player Bio Book”
was produced for coaches that included a photograph of the player and contact and other information to aid the coaches in
recruitment (colleges that purchased a Player Bio Book have a † next to their name). In 2005 improved online registration
for coaches was implemented. With the move to Berkeley in 2007, for the first time The Nationals was able to offer a
ball-room setting for the Forum at the Claremont Resort & Spa, the use of an online survey to gather input, and discounted
hotel rooms and parking at the Claremont.

Partnering With the Berkeley & Oakland Communities
The Nationals is the only USTA Junior National Championship to be
organized by a non-profit corporation. Modeled after most professional
tournaments that make a contribution to their city, The Nationals,
because of its unique relationship with BTC Foundation, is also one of
the few junior national tournaments to directly impact and financially
support the larger community.

Youth Tennis Advantage. In 2007, the tournament’s leadership
selected Youth Tennis Advantage (YTA) to be the recipient of proceeds
from The Nationals. We are proud to announce after both the 2007
and 2008 events, $5,000 donations were made in support of their
programming (YTA participants are pictured top right). YTA has again
been selected as an organization the tournament will support in 2009.

YTA is dedicated to serving youth in inner city communities, primarily
in the San Francisco and Oakland areas, through a comprehensive
program of tennis and academic tutoring that promotes the physical,
educational, and life skills necessary to prepare and empower them for
leadership in their communities, and success in their personal lives.
YTA uses the game of tennis to help kids:




                                                                          • Develop work ethic and build discipline

                                                                          • Manage stress
                                                                          • Enhance decision-making skills
                                                                          • Develop effective performance rituals
                                                                          • Learn sportsmanship and life skills
                                                                          • Learn teamwork and communication

Berkeley High School. The Tournament Steering Committee is proud to announce that Berkeley High School’s tennis team
will also be receiving our support. A portion of the proceeds from the 2009 tournament will be donated to the school to support
the team and its efforts to rebuild the school’s tennis facility.

Kids’ Day at the Nationals. During the 2008 event, the tournament was proud to host the annual “Kids’ Day at The Nationals.”
Approximately 50 children from local organizations including the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Oakland and the Berkeley National
Junior Tennis League came to learn about tennis by speaking with players, coaches, and volunteers. The children learned how
sports, tennis in particular, can enhance their own lives and give them opportunities to attend college. The group also watched
some of the day’s tournament play, received tennis t-shirts, and enjoyed meeting players and getting their autographs. Photos at
the middle and bottom left were taken on Kids’ Day.


  WE’VE GONE                     Environmental awareness is a key aspect of the tournament’s partnership with our community.
                                 Beginning with the 2009 event, the Nationals has a GREEN initiative with a Steering Committee


  GREEN!
                                 member in charge of ensuring we are meeting sustainable and environmental standards. Our
                                 stated goals include the use of sustainable materials, recycling and composting tournament
                                 waste, a used tennis racquet drive and the donation of tournament tennis balls.
                                                        United States Tennis Association
                                                        Founded in 1881 to Promote the Game of Tennis
                                          Each year the BTC Foundation applies to and receives its sanction for The
                                          Nationals from the USTA. The rules and regulations of the tennis tournament are
                                          determined and enforced by the USTA. In order for BTC Foundation to continue
                                          to bring the USTA Girls’ 18 National Championships to Berkeley, it must, once
                                          again, run a successful event.

                                          The USTA is a non-profit corporation with more than 665,000 individual members
                                          whose volunteers, professional staff, and financial resources support a single
                                          mission: to promote and develop the growth of tennis. It’s purposes include:




• To promote the development of tennis as a
  means of healthy recreation and physical fitness;
• To establish and maintain rules of play and
  high standards of amateurism and good
  sportsmanship;
• To foster national and international amateur
  tennis tournaments and competitions;
• To encourage, sanction and conduct tennis
  tournaments and competitions open to athletes
  without regard to race, creed, color, sexual preference, or national
  origin and under the best conditions possible so as to effectively
  promote the game of tennis with the general public; and
• To generally encourage through tennis the development of health,
  character, and responsible citizenship.




                                                                         The USTA provides support to the junior players that
                                                                         compete at The Nationals: coaching; training centers;
                                                                         local, national, and international competition; and
                                                                         financial assistance to players.

• Align Your Business with the Positive Health Benefits of Tennis
A study appearing in the Journal of American Medical Association reported that rates of
obesity in children and adolescents have more than tripled - from 5 percent in the 1970s to
18 percent today.1 The Surgeon General warned that risk factors for heard disease, Type 2
diabetes, low self-esteem, and depression are linked to childhood obesity and overweight
adolescents have a 70% chance of becoming overweight or obese adults.2
Tennis is a healthy lifestyle option for our population. The British Journal of Sports
Medicine reported the following conclusions of a 2007 study: “...people who choose to
play tennis appear to have significant health benefits, including improved aerobic fitness,
a lower body fat percentage, a more favorable lipid profile, a reduced risk for developing
cardiovascular disease, and improved bone health.”3 Further, tennis players scored higher
in vigor, optimism and self-esteem while scoring lower in depression, anger, confusion,
anxiety and tension than other athletes or non-athletes, according to Dr. Joan Finn and
colleagues in a study done at Southern Connecticut State University.4

• Participate in Your Community
The Nationals is a comprehensive effort to bring national-caliber tennis to our area. The event is made possibly only by the
synergy of our volunteers and the sponsors, each providing the manpower and financial backing necessary to put on an event
of this size. Our efforts extend into the greater community in hosting Kids’ Day, supporting the after-school tennis and tutoring
programs of Youth Tennis Advantage and the Berkeley High School tennis team, and serving as an environmentally-friendly
model with our GREEN initiative.

• Promote the Pursuit of Excellence Demonstrated by the Nationals Participants
The young women who participate in the Nationals are dedicated to the pursuit of both academic and athletic excellence:

                                             √ 83% play tennis two or more hours every day5
                                             The Nationals recognizes not only the victors, but those who display

                                             and maturity in their interaction with our volunteers and guests. We have the
                                             distinction of presenting not only the USTA’s sportsmanship award, but our own
                                             Chairman’s award, and the Maureen Connolly Brinker Award for outstanding
