USTA/Midwest Section Senior Team Championships

by Burt Wohahn, Chairman Adult Tennis Committee (extracted from an article in the  WTA Official Guide - Yearbook)

The Adult Tennis Committee of the Wisconsin Tennis Association now replaces the former Adult Tennis Council and has been reorganized and charged with the task of recruiting our best senior players to field a Wisconsin District Senior Team to compete in the annual USTA Midwest Senior Team Championships held in May at Lansing, Michigan.  The tournament is scheduled for May each year. This highly competitive and extremely well run doubles tournament provides and intra-sectional opportunity for our senior players 35 and older and it is the desire of the WTA to provide a competitive senior team in every age division.

The format of the tournament is a full round robin within each age division. Each match consists of one (1) eight game pro-set with a 7 point tiebreak played at 7 games all.  Each district team is awarded one (1) point for each game won by all their individual doubles teams.  In as highly individual a sport as in tennis, this intra-sectional competitions is a unique opportunity to develop team spirit and new friendships with fellow Wisconsin players. Competitive contact with other districts frequently results in an exchange of ideas regarding various tennis issues in addition to spirited tennis play.  The entry fee for this event is $80.00 per team which covers round robin tennis, a t-shirt, Friday night banquet, a Saturday Wilson Demo Night and Sunday noon "fast serve" awards lunch.  It is the desire of the WTA to provide a competitive senior team in every age division and to this end pays the entry fee for each team and provides each player with a $75.00 stipend towards their expenses for this four (4) day commitment.

Anyone interested in playing in this event, please contact Burt Woyahn, Sherry Ploor or the WTA office at 1-800-WIS-TENN
