Sherri Bronson is one of two players from USTA Southwest who'll be representing the United States at the 30th ITF Seniors World Team Championships in Mexico.
The USTA announced the players who will represent the United States at the 30th ITF Seniors World Team Championships hosted by Federacion Mexicana de Tenis and two USTA Southwest players - Andrew Stoner (Cave Creek, Ariz.) and Sherri Bronson (Scottsdale, Ariz.) were among those selected.

The top American tennis players in age divisions 35-55 for both men and women will compete, March 29- April 3, in Mexico City, Mexico. The events will be held at the following five venues: Club Aleman de Mexico, The Reforma Athletic Club, Club Casablanca Lomas Verdes, Club Casablanca San Angel and Club de Racqueta El Yaqui.

The ITF Seniors/Super-Seniors World Team Championships is the most coveted team event on the ITF Seniors circuit. Since its inception in 1981, the number of competitors attracted to this event has increased year by year. In 1993, the ITF took the decision to divide the Seniors World Championships into two groups -- Seniors (35-55) and Super-Seniors (60-80 for men and 60-75 for women).

Following the ITF Seniors World Team Championships the World Individual Championships will take place April 4-11 in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

Stoner, the No. 1 player in Men's 45s had a stellar 2009 campaign, capturing three USTA National age group championships. Bronson finished 2009 as the No. 2-ranked player in the nation in Women's 55s.

Both Stoner and Bronson are among the top players in the world in their age groups in the ITF rankings (Stoner is No. 4, Bronson is No. 2). Stoner will also serve as the US team captain for his age group.
