"The DecoTurf National High School Championship is the best run tournament we have ever played in with by far the deepest field.

There is nothing better than an early season road-trip to bring the team closer together and kick of the season on a positive note" -Tad Eckert (Head Coach, New Trier High School)

"You run a great tournament. The competition is second to none. This tournament has become the top tourney on our schedule outside our State Championship.

We will always play this one, assuming we are good enough." -Kerry Lancaster (Head Coach, Saint Xavier High School)

“The Deco Turf Team Championship is one of the premier events of the year for High School tennis. It brings together the best of the best for a team tournament that has no rival in High School tennis nationwide. We were lucky enough to participate in the event this year and could not have been more pleased with the professionalism of the tournament coordinators. From the quality of the courts to the great goody-bags to the fine hotels it is a first- rate tournament. We are coming back next year for sure.” -John Naisbitt (Head Coach, Hinsdale Central High School)
