Miami Set to Host Young Seniors   

Erin Maher | August 22, 2018


The tennis courts in Miami will be sizzling at the end of October at the ITF Young Seniors Championships hosted at the Miami Beach and Flamingo Park Tennis Centers. The Team Championships will run from Sunday, October 21 through Friday, October 3, with the Individual Championships following from Saturday, October 27 to Saturday, November 3. 

 

Over 1,000 top-ranked players from Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, China, Australia, the U.K., New Zealand, Spain and the United States will battle it out over the course of the two weeks on the baseline to see who comes out on top in the 35, 40 and 45 age divisions. The event will include singles, doubles and mixed doubles play.  

 

The city of Miami has a long and storied tennis history, as the Flamingo Park Tennis Center was the original site of the Orange Bowl in 1947. The ITF Young Seniors Individual Championships hopes to burnish the community's tennis legacy further. Besides all the great tennis in Miami, the city is a wonderful vacation destination.

 

"Miami is an incredible travel experience," said City of Miami Beach Commissioner John Elizabeth Alemán. "For these age brackets, it’s a great destination Incredible arts and culture."

 

Having the ITF Young Seniors, an international tournament, on American beaches also affords locals the ability to play with other great players from around the globe. 

 

"This tournament is a really incredible opportunity for someone who doesn’t have to come from across the world to see what international tennis is like," says Co-Tournament Director, Lori Nieder.

 

Interested in getting in on the action? There's still time to register for the Individual Championships. Seniors who have a valid IPIN account are encouraged to enter.  The entry deadline is Wednesday, Sept. 26.
