Local league winners advance up to this Section Championship event and winners in Tucson then earn a spot in the USTA 2018 League National Championships in their divisions.
Teams in four separate flighted NTRP skill levels - 3.0, 3,5, 4.0 and 4.5+ - are participating in Tucson and each team will play a five-court format of two singles and three doubles lines per team match. ADVERTISEMENT Some 300-plus players are expected to attend this year's championship event.
Matches will begin at 7:30 a.m. each of the three days, with the last rounds finishing early afternoon Sunday.
Below is tournament information about this year's championships. A playing schedule will be added in late April/early May. More information will be added to this page, so check back periodically for updated info.
HOST PLAYING SITE & HOTEL
The main host site for the 2018 USTA Southwest 40 & Over Adult League Section Championships is the Hilton El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort.
The 16-court lighted facility is one of the Southwest's and, indeed the United States', most beautiful tennis centers, resting in a gorgeous spot at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains.
The facility is consistently rated as our USTA League players' favorite tournament destination, and it has hosted an assortment of high-caliber events in past years, including USTA League National Championships, past USTA Southwest League Championships in each category, the USTA Southwest Senior Closed, and the USTA Southwest Junior Closed.
'El Con' as it's affectionately known, has been a perennial Top 50 Tennis Welcome Center in the United States and is a Four Diamond golf and tennis resort with an extensive array of amenities, like two championship golf courses, spa, pool. etc. The entire hotel has undergone upgrades in the last couple of years as well, making the stay and play experience even better!
We will also be using the nearby Oro Valley Community & Recreation Center's 16 courts (formerly the Hilton El Conquistador Country Club) as an auxillary .
