Beringer Gold Cup NTRP Tennis Tournament at Silverado May 17-19

Silverado Resort and Spa will host the eighth annual Beringer NTRP Tournament May 17-19. Sponsored by Beringer Wines, the tournament has become a yearly staple on the NorCal NTRP (National Tennis Rating Program) circuit, which is designed for amateur players of all levels to compete in singles and doubles. The United States Tennis Association-sanctioned event includes divisions for Men’s Singles (3.0-5.0), Men’s Doubles (3.0-5.0), Women’s Singles (2.5-5.0), Women’s Doubles (3.0-5.0) and Mixed Doubles (3.0-5.0).

The Gold Cup Designation is the equivalent of a Grand Slam designation in professional tennis. These events are worth double the points of other local tournaments, as players try to compete for the No. 1 ranking in the USTA NorCal region. Silverado has obtained its fourth designation as a Gold Cup Event due to high player evaluations from previous tournaments.

Beringer will provide special wine trophies to the winners of each division and do a complimentary tasting for spectators and players that Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
