Kang389The beautiful Hilton El Conquistador will be the host venue for this year's USTA Southwest 40 & Over Adult League Championships, May 2-4, 2014.

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

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 2014.

Four separate flighted NTRP skill levels - 3.0, 3,5, 4.0 and 4.5 - are how the teams are divided in Tucson. 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 the 2014 championships. 

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

Below is tournament information about this year's championships. A playing schedule will be added in late April. More information will be added to this page, so check back periodically for updated info.



HiltonElCon_panoramaThe main host site for the 2014 USTA Southwest 40 & Over Adult League Section Championships is the Hilton El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort.  

The 16-court lighted facility is one of the Southwest's and, indeed the United States', most beautiful tennis centers, resting in a gorgeous spot at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

The facility is consistently rated as our players' favorite tournament destination, and it has hosted an array of top flight events in past years, including USTA League National Championships, past USTA Southwest League Championships in each category, the USTA Southwest Senior Closed, and the USTA Southwest Junior Closed. 

'El Con'  as it's affectionately known, has been a perennial Top 50 Tennis Welcome Center in the United States and is a Four Diamond golf and tennis resort with an extensive array of amenities, like two championship golf courses, spa, pool. etc.

The facility also boasts a 15-court tennis complex at the nearby Hilton El Conquistador Country Club. We will be using both sites.
