Iowa Teams Prep for League Nationals

Andrea Gallagher | September 29, 2021

A handful of USTA Iowa adult league teams will be heading to the National Championships this year. There will be three locations for the 2021 tournaments including Phoenix and Surprise, Arizona; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Orlando, Florida.

 

Tina Schoenfelder and Heidi Snedegar’s 40-over 3.5 team based out of Des Moines is heading to Oklahoma City October 15-17. They are getting ready by doing weekly clinics and playing as much as possible.

 

“We have been practicing together against other local teams that are a level above us,” Snedegar said. “We have also been able to get together and play some matches with some ladies that play for a local college.”

 

“We are excited to meet other teams from around the country and play against people with different styles of play,” Schoenfelder added. “We all love the competition USTA offers and enjoy our time on the court!”

 

Lindsay Chase captains the 18-over 4.5 team based out of Des Moines, and they are headed to Nationals in Arizona. Their team has been together for around ten years, and they’ve been to Nationals before so know what to expect.

 

“We are looking forward to camaraderie, competition and fun,” she said. “We all love playing tennis and there is no better competition than at Nationals.  Off the court we are all good friends so looking forward to lots of laughs, fun and making memories.”  

 

Until then, they are practicing regularly and trying to stay healthy and injury-free so they can compete as best they can.

 

“I’m so thankful to have found a sport like tennis, that you only have to have one other person to play with, and can do it at any age. It’s a great way to stay competitive and active all year round,” Chase added.
