2012 USTA Southwest Super Senior League Championships

 2012 USTA Southwest Super Senior League Section Championships
November 30 – December 2, 2012
Wyndham El Paso Airport Hotel – El Paso, Texas
Ellis Tennis Center
(Tentative as of 11/14 - final schedule will be given out at Captain's Meeting)
SuperSr_Web_387League teams who have qualified by winning their local divisions will be competing over three days at the Ellis Tennis Center in El Paso this winter at the USTA Southwest Super Senior League Championships.
This event brings together the top gender teams of players 60 years and over - teams from places like Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Las Cruces and the host city of El Paso. This event has traditionally been one of our most competitive, and the Super Senior divisions is probably our most successful at a national level. For the last three years, at least one division champion at the USTA Southwest Super Senior League Championships has gone on to become a national champion. 
Winners at the 2012 USTA Southwest Super Senior League Championships will be playing for not only the Southwest title, but receive the all-important automatic bid to the 2012 USTA National Super Senior League Championships. The national championship event will be held in the spring of 2013. 
This will also be the final USTA Southwest league championship event for the calendar year that will be held before the league restructure takes place beginning in 2013. 
EllisTennisCenter_imageHOST PLAYING SITE
The host site for this year’s 2012 USTA Southwest Super Senior League Section Championships will be the Ellis Tennis Center in El Paso, Texas.
Formerly the El Paso Youth Tennis Center, the 23-court facility located in Northeast El Paso has not only changed names, but been updated and renovated. The Ellis Tennis Center has undergone quite a facelift in the last year with an improved pro shop area, 23 resurfaced courts (all to US Open blue) that includes a 10 and Under Tennis dedicated stadium court, shade structures on all courts, and a spacious new player lounge area.
Another perk is having video cameras on all courts that should really benefit tournament participants, friends and families, who can actually watch matches live on the multiple TV screens inside the lounge.
The courts are located at 4770 Woodrow Bean, El Paso, Texas  79924. The phone number for the complex is (915) 751-1983. Click here for directions from the host hotel.
