HOST HOTEL - Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa

The host hotel for this year’s USTA Southwest Annual Meeting is the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa. Located up against the Catalina Mountains, this Four Diamond resort is one of the nation’s finest, and a true gem of Tucson.

WestinLaPaloma_aerialThe resort has five gorgeous swimming pools, a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa and 10 championship tennis courts (four clay, six hard, eight lighted for night play).

The facility, which opened in February 1986, has been a past home to USTA National Meetings (March 2007), and has garnered many awards for travel and service, including a near-annual selection as one of TennisMagazine’s Top 50 Resorts in the United States.  

A terrific room rate of $119/night (plus taxes) is available to USTA Southwest Annual Meeting attendees. The facility is located in the heart of Tucson up against a breathtaking backdrop.

If you can’t attend the USTA Southwest Annual Meeting/Annual Awards & Hall of Fame Banquet, we hope that you will consider donating to the Southwest Tennis Foundation

SWTF_NEW305x200The Southwest Tennis Foundation is the charitable arm of the Southwest, and, as such, is always in search of contributions from tennis lovers to help sustain its good works in local communities across our area. 

The Foundation will hold a special Silent Auction after the Awards/Hall of Fame Banquet with several cool items and prizes to help raise funds for tennis programming.

Proceeds from the fundraiser go toward assisting grass roots tennis organizations, travel and training grants for juniors as well as need-based college scholarships for deserving young tennis players – all from the Southwest. 

Help us support that effort by donating online. Even small amounts go a long way to help us sustain and fund these terrific endeavors. There is a special option at the top of the page to make a $5 contribution to the Foundation on top of your fee for attending. Please consider donating!
