As league season gears up, USTA Nebraska has a new leader at the realm. Kay Merkel will be organizing all USTA adult leagues for the district.
Merkel has lived in Omaha for 25 years and has played U on both women’s and mixed teams, captained a number of women’s teams, and she is currently serving on the Omaha Tennis Association board. Merkel said “she looks forward to the opportunity of serving the Nebraska tennis community in my new role as District League Coordinator.”
USTA League tennis is the country’s largest adult recreational tennis league – and a great way to stay active, socialize and improve your game. Plus, with players of nearly all skill levels, there’s a place for you and your game.
Merkel started playing tennis at age 8 in her native Wisconsin, where she largely played outdoors despite snow sometimes being on the court. ADVERTISEMENT She began playing tennis in a team format in the 1980s in Texas, prior to moving to the Caribbean and then eventually Omaha. She has two adult daughters and a son-in-law.
