Northern

Battle of the Mississippi



Three USTA sections - one traveling trophy. 

 

It's the Battle of the Mississippi - a Level 2 Intersectional team tournament with USTA Midwest, USTA Missouri Valley and USTA Northern. Who will take home The Ox this year?

 

The tournament's unique Dominant Duo format is great for team play. One boy and one girl per team will play two gendered singles and one mixed doubles match per round. 

 

Competitors will be selected based on the most recent National Standings list. Players are assigned a doubles partner based on their NSL in descending order. (Ex: Boy 1 from Northern will play with Girl 1 from Northern and Boy 2 will play with Girl 2).

 

Got what it takes to help bring The Ox home?
