SURPRISE, ARIZ., OCTOBER 23, 2016 – The women’s tennis team from Nashville, Tennessee, representing the USTA Southern Section, captured the national title at the USTA League Adult 55 & Over 6.0 National Championships held at the Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex in Surprise, Ariz.

 

The Nashville team defeated a team from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, 2-1 in the Championship match.  Earlier in the day, the Nashville team defeated a team from Simsbury, Connecticut, 2-1 in the semifinals. They advanced this far by winning their round-robin flight contested Friday and Saturday.

 

The team is captained by Susan Castelli and Louise Davis and features Margaret Officer, Becky Hellerson, Beth Ligon Molteni, Kathleen Adlerz, Donna Reed, Lucia Cherry, Victoria Ramsey, Bernadette Keaggy, Dewanda Carbine, Kitty Boyte McKee, Cheryl Lynn Byrd and plays at the Brentwood Swim and Tennis Club, Richland Country Club and Maryland Farms YMCA.

 

Established in 1980, USTA League has grown from 13,000 participants in a few parts of the country in its first year, to over 904,000 players across the nation today, making it the world’s largest recreational tennis league.

 

USTA League was established 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.  The league groups players by using six National Tennis Rating Program (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. 

 

The 2016 USTA League season will be the fourth season with the updated structure and format which offers four age categories (Adult 18 & Over, Adult 40 & Over and Adult 55 & Over and Mixed 18 & Over) to better align participants with players their own age. A fifth age division the Mixed 40 & Over division was added in 2014.  The restructuring guarantees more frequency of play opportunities at more appropriate age groups.
