Co-ed fun and a shot at a Section team title will be on the line at the USTA Southwest Adult Mixed League Championships in Surprise, Arizona, September 22-24.
This year's event will be held at longtime USTA Southwest league championships facility, Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex.
Co-ed teams of players from all across the Southwest will make their way to Surprise for a chance at Section supremacy, both the 18 & Over divisions and the 40 & Over divisions.
These mixed, co-ed teams at all skill levels will put their games to a challenge during the late-summer Arizona heat in three days of pool play. ADVERTISEMENT Winning teams in each division and skill level will not only hold Section bragging rights, but also earn the right to advance on to this year's USTA League National Championships.
This event is one of our more fun and relaxed league championship events each year. The co-ed aspect of play really is a huge draw for players, as so few sports give the opporunity for men and women to compete together.
