Adult/Senior USTA League State Championships To Be Held in Memphis!


Attention all USTA League teams gearing up for the 2011 spring season, we have some extra motivation for you. We are excited to announce that the Memphis Public Tennis Centers (MPTC) will make its debut as league state championship host in 2011 and 2012.
Tennis Memphis and the Memphis Tennis Association will present the State Championships to be held over two weekends:
June 10-12, 2011 (2.5, 3.5, 4.5 Adult and 3.0, 4.0 Senior)
June 24-26, 2011 (3.0, 4.0, 5.0 Adult and 3.5, 4.5 Senior) 
Leftwich Tennis Center will serve as tournament headquarters; other playing sites include Wolbrecht, Eldon Roark Tennis Centers, Dunavant-Wellford Tennis Center (MUS/Hutchinson), Rhodes College.
Tennis Memphis and the MTA have created a tournament committee and are working with the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau and other organizations to create the best experience for players who will be coming from all over the state of Tennessee. This is the first time that the state championships have ever been held in Memphis and is a great opportunity for our tennis community to come together to ensure its success.  Please join us in making this a successful event. If you are interested in volunteering, sponsorship or have any questions/suggestions please contact either Stephen Lang or Tim Clements. Look for more information in the near future.
