State Championships

This is only a local league and does not advance to a State Championship.  However, in order to play in the MA.T.C.H. League each player will need to download these 3 waivers and send them back to julie@corta.org PRIOR to the player’s first match. CORTA only needs one set of waivers on file.  If you have already played MA.T.C.H before, you do not need to resubmit the waivers. The player will not be allowed to play without each waiver on file.  Thank you for your understanding.  Let’s play tennis:)!
