Mixed 40 & Over League Holds Sectional Championships in Lake Tahoe
ALAMEDA, Calif. — Over 650 tennis players are expected to take part in the 2017 USTA Mixed 40 & Over Sectional Championships, which are being held June 9-11, in the Lake Tahoe area. The host sites are Incline Village Tennis in Incline Village, Nev., NorthStar Tennis and Tahoe Donner Tennis Center in Truckee, Calif.
This year’s event has drawn the top 56 teams from throughout Northern California. ADVERTISEMENT The teams, which represent various clubs, parks, recreational departments and organizations, have finished at the top of their local leagues and are now vying for a chance to represent the USTA Northern California Section at the USTA League National Championships, taking place November 10-12, in Mobile, Ala.
The Mixed 40 & Over League was created to better align participants with players their own age. The playing season took place from January 2 to March 26, with local league playoffs spanning across the first two weekends in April.
USTA League was established 37 years ago to provide adult recreational tennis players throughout the country with the opportunity to compete against players of similar ability levels. Players participate on teams in a league format, which is administered by the USTA through its 17 sections. USTA League groups players by using six NTRP levels, ranging from 2.5 (entry) to 5.0 (advanced). USTA League is open to any USTA member 18 years of age or older.
USTA League, the United States’ largest recreational tennis league, helps hundreds of thousands of participants get on the court, have a good time and step up their game. Take part in the fun for an unmatched team experience!
