Adult Age Group Series Played on All Surfaces

Four Adult "Southwest Slam" Events Held Throughout Year



USTA Southwest is supporting an adult age group tournament series called the Southwest Slam Series, the definitive section "surface" championships with indoor, grass, clay, and hard court tournaments being held to determine just who our best all-surface players are in singles, doubles and mixed doubles competitions from the 35s level all the way up to the 85s level. 


GrassTennisThese four Southwest championship events are Level 1 Southwest Tournaments for adult age group ranking purposes and unique opportunities for players to test their skills on a variety of playing surfaces. That means they are the best of the best! 


Play your own "Slam" events just like the professionals do, and be on your way to becoming the true all-surface specialist of the Southwest in your age group.


These four events – the Indoor Championships (held in February), the Grass Championships (Held in late May/early June), Clay Championships (held in September) and the Hard Court Championships (held in the fall) will be fun-filled tournaments with great competition along the way, and will feature some of the top adult age group players in the Section vying for rankings points as well as tournament titles, and in the USTA Southwest Adult Grand Prix yearly race.
