Tennis Tournament Coming to Durham

USTA North Carolina announced that the 2011 and 2012 North Carolina USTA League Mixed Doubles State Championships have been awarded to Durham. This tournament draws over 1,000 players annually and features local champion teams from each of the fourteen local leagues.

USTA League Mixed Doubles is a recreational tennis program for all players, regardless of skill. Anyone 18 years old, or over, may play in the adult division and 50 or over in the senior division. Players range in skill level, beginner 2.5 to advanced 5.5, with teams comprised of men and women playing together. State winners are granted passage onto the Sectional Championships and then potentially on to Nationals.

The tournament was previously held in Wilson (2009-10). Prior to Wilson the event was held in Durham for several years.

“USTA North Carolina is thrilled to have the tournament return to Durham,” said Director of League Tennis Chris Bryce. “The city and local volunteers have done an outstanding job of creating an incredible experience for our players in previous hosted events.”

USTA League Tennis was established to provide adult recreational tennis players throughout the country the opportunity to compete against players of similar ability levels. For tournament specific information please visit:
