Tennis season has officially arrived as the Surprise Tennis and Racquet Complex prepares to welcome approximately 3,000 players, competing in several United States Tennis Association League National Championships this fall.
Events will take place at the Surprise Tennis and Racquet Complex, 14469 W. Paradise Lane.
It starts with the USTA Southwest Sectional 18 & Over and 40 & Over Mixed Doubles Championship Sept. 23–25.
This co-ed championship is one of the USTA Southwest’s most popular local leagues with representation from Northern Arizona, Northern New Mexico, Southern Arizona, Phoenix (formerly Central Arizona), Greater El Paso and Southern New Mexico.
As one of the top championship events on the calendar each year, nearly 500 players from across all parts of the section will duel it out for the Section championship crown in both 18 & Over and 40 & Over mixed divisions.
Winners will earn an automatic bid to the USTA League National championship event held later in fall and move on as the Southwest representative.
Several USTA League National Championships will follow in this order:
• Sept. 30-Oct. 2 Division: Adult 18 & Over 3.5
• Oct. 7-9 Division: Adult 18 & Over 4.5
