40League_387_2013
This three-day event will bring together some of the best league teams in various skill levels from across the Southwest, teams from cities like Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Las Cruces, and the host city of El Paso.

 

Local league winners will duke it out on court for Section pre-eminence and a shot to advance on to the USTA League 40 & Over National Championships held in the Fall of 2013.

 

Four separate flighted NTRP skill levels - 3.0, 3,5, 4.0 and 4.5 - are how the teams are divided in El Paso. Each team will play a five-court format of two singles and three doubles per team match. More than 300 players are expected to attend this year's championships.

Matches will start at 7 a.m. each of the three days, with the last rounds going off on early afternoon Sunday.  

 

Good luck to all of our teams participating in the event. Below is tournament information about this year's championships.

TennisBallSMALLHOST HOTEL

EPMarriottThe host hotel for this year's championship event is the El Paso Marriott near the airport. The hotel has been kind enough to block off rooms for our 40 & Over League Section Championships players at a terrific rate of $80/night plus taxes.

Click HERE to be taken to a page to make your reservations. The group code is already on the page.

The Marriott hotel is centrally located between the three playing venues - so it's an excellent place to make your reservation for the weekend. 

 

Since teams will likely play at each venue for the tournament, the host hotel is a great spot to be. Plus, purchasing through the USTA helps support tennis programs in the Southwest.

 

Follow the reservation link above or call the hotel number below. Please be sure to use the promo code "USTA" when calling to reserve your room rate.
