This year two USTA League teams from Iowa will be heading to Nationals: the 40 & Over 4.0 men’s team captained by Richard Heil and the 40 & Over 4.5 women’s team captained by Jennie Henry. Both teams are out of the Des Moines area.


Henry said her team is super excited to be heading to Nationals, and are already ramping up their practices to prepare for the tournament. She is looking forward to having fun for a common cause, and spending time with her teammates.


“I feel like we have a great team and will do our best to represent Iowa,” she said. “I look forward to the memories we will have both on and off the court, and learning more about each other.”
