Delaware Teams Head for USA League Section Championships

September 8, 2004 01:22 PM

This year’s event has drawn the top 38 teams from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. The teams which represent various clubs, parks, recreational departments and organizations, have finished at the top of their local leagues and are now vying for a chance to represent the USTA/Middle States Section at the USA League Tennis National Championships. Senior players are 50 years and over.

 

“The section championships determine the best tennis teams in this area,” said Sally Baird, tournament director for the event. “They’ve fought their way here, and now they have a chance to win and earn their way to the national championships.  These teams have a shot at being the number one recreational tennis team in the country.”
