A section title will be up for grabs at the USTA Southwest Adult Tri-Level League Invitational in Scottsdale, Arizona, January 19-21, 2024.
This event, while held early in the year in 2024, is the culmination of 2023 USTA League play in Tri-Level leagues, and thus it's a 2023 calendar championship. We get it, it's a bit confusing!

'SRP' is a past USTA Outstanding Facility Award winner, has played home to the USTA Winter National Championships, and has been a frequent host of past USTA Southwest section championship adult and junior events.
Teams of players from all over the Southwest will make their way to Scottsdale for a chance at the Tri-Level event, which
Tri-Level teams are comprised of three team divisions (3.0, 3.5, 4.0), (3.5, 4.0, 4.5) and (4.0, 4.5, 5.0) all playing doubles lines in their respective gender.
