Adult Doubles Tournament Set for November 12-14 in Springfield

Josh Sellmeyer | September 29, 2021

Players can register their doubles teams for the 18 & Over adult tournament taking place November 12-14 at the Cooper Tennis Complex in Springfield, Mo. To register for this sanctioned Level 6 event, click here.


The all-doubles tournament features two divisions — 18 & Over as well as 55 & Over — for men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles. Teams will be organized by their combined NTRP ratings, as combo flights are available for the 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 and 9.0 levels in both divisions.


Players can register for a maximum of two events and cannot sign up for the same combo event in both divisions. Registering to play 6.0 women’s doubles for both 18 & Over and 55 & Over, for example, is not allowed. But players could register to play 6.0 women’s doubles and 6.0 mixed doubles.


Cost to register for the first event is $35, while tacking on a second event costs an additional $25. If weather permits the doubles tourney will occur outside. But indoor courts are reserved at the Cooper Complex in case of inclement weather.


Leslie Echols — USTA Missouri adult league coordinator — said the tournament will kick off at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, November 12. The bulk of the matches will be scheduled for Saturday. Any participants traveling to Springfield to compete can request to start their tourney on Saturday morning as opposed to Friday night.


The semifinals and finals are slated for Sunday morning if the tournament isn’t wrapped up on Saturday. Echols said this is fluid and will be dependent upon how many people register to play.


“I’m really excited and looking forward to it,” Echols said. “I keep getting feedback from people around USTA Missouri about their excitement. I am grateful to have events like this happening again. It’s going to be just a really fun weekend.”


Individuals can contact Echols if they have questions or need assistance finding a playing partner. 


“I’ve reached out to players around the district, letting them know about the tournament,” Echols said. “The impression I’m getting is we have players traveling from Columbia and may have some players traveling from other districts nearby, like northwest Arkansas or Kansas City. I am optimistic we’re going to have a great turnout.”
