USTA LEAGUE MIXED 18 & OVER 7.0 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

 

TUCSON, ARIZ., NOVEMBER, 15, 2015 – A mixed tennis team from Wilmette, Ill., representing the USTA Midwest Section, captured the national title at the USTA League Mixed 18 & Over 7.0 National Championships held at the Hilton El Conquistador Resort, Tucson, Ariz.

The Wilmette team defeated a team from Caguas, P.R., 2-1 in the Championship match.  Earlier in the day, the Wilmette team defeated a team from Pelham, Ala., 2-1 in the semifinals. They advanced this far by winning their round-robin flight contested Friday and Saturday.

The team is captained by Sidhartha Tan and features Jozef Slaby, Alison Sarah Donnelly, Maerry Lee, Marialin Lomongo, Huan Chang, Remenisa Masa, Eric Ho, Duan Chen. The team plays at Centennial Tennis.

Established in 1980, USTA League has grown from 13,000 participants in a few parts of the country in its first year to more than 865,000 players across the nation today, making it the world’s largest recreational tennis league.

USTA League was established to provide adult recreational tennis players throughout the country with the opportunity to compete against players of similar ability levels. Players participate on teams in a league format, which is administered by the USTA through its 17 sections. The league groups players by using six National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) levels, ranging from 2.5 (entry) to 5.0 (advanced). USTA League is open to any USTA member 18 years of age or older.

The 2015 USTA League season will be the third season with the updated structure and format which offers four age categories (Adult 18 & Over, Adult 40 & Over and Adult 55 & Over and Mixed 18 & Over) to better align participants with players their own age. A fifth age division, the Mixed 40 & Over division, was added last year. The restructuring guarantees more frequency of play opportunities at more appropriate age groups.

Head Penn Racquet Sports is in its 28th year as official ball of USTA League.
