About the Grand Prix

At each tournament, Grand Prix points are awarded based on # of matches won: 25 points per match in the main draw, 15 points per match in the consolation draw, and 50 points for first place in team tennis. In addition, players receive a minimum of 10 Grand Prix points for each MVTC tournament they play.

At the end of the season, MVTC holds an invitational tournament in November for the top Grand Prix point-getters. Any player collecting 40 MVTC Grand Prix points by the end of October is eligible to play in the November MVTC Grand Prix tournament.

Note: Current standings are posted on the website under Race to the Grand Prix.

As recognition for achievement in tournament play, the male and female players who have collected the most MVTC Grand Prix points between January and October receive a prize and have their names engraved on a plaque memorializing past top Grand Prix point winners at Cuesta (similar to the most-improved and best sportsmanship plaques).
