World Team Tennis is a United States Tennis Association franchise that has been played across the United States at the recreation level for many years. The rules are similar to USTA tennis matches but designed to make the matches more social and fun. The games are no ad, lets on the serve are played out and players can substitute in on a frequent basis during the game.
In 2021, the Sun City West Tennis Club organized a super senior team, consisting of up to five men and five women 60 years old or older. In May of 2022, the Sun City West Racqueteers represented Arizona at the World Team National Qualifiers in Las Vegas at the 3.5 super senior’s level. While the official result for the first time at this event was third out of six in their class, from across the U.S., they beat the first place team from Honolulu and missed winning the super senior class by two games. The winner went to the finals in Orlando.
From May 12 to 14, the Sun City Racketeers will again attend the National Qualifiers in Las Vegas. The super seniors team will be joined by a seniors team (50 to 60 years old), also at the 3.5 level. The teams are practicing every other week. Dates and times vary.
There are limited spaces still available for those interested in participating in this event. Call Pete Kosky at 503-898-2802 for information.
