TriLevel387_2013USTA Southwest will host the fifth annual Tri-Level League Championships on January 11-13, 2013 at the Phoenix Tennis Center.


More than 120 players from across the Section are expected to compete in this "tri-level" format (named for the three different NTRP levels 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5) that make up each team. Tri-Level is a growing format in the Southwest and across the nation with more and more teams participating each and every year.


The topper to participating in Tri-Level leagues is the invitational national championship each year that is held in conjunction with the BNP Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, Calif.


Section championship winning teams get to compete at the same time as the top professionals are battling out for their own title! It's a pretty sweet spectacle and a great feel and environment. Section championship teams usually get tickets to the event as well, so not only do you get to play, but you get to watch the top pros in action.


The BNP Paribas Open Tri-Level National Championships will be held in March 2013. Defending champions at the USTA Southwest Tri-Level League Championships are Central Arizona women and Central Arizona men. 




Winners of each men's and women's level will compete for the USTA Southwest team at the national championships.



Registration and a mandatory captain's meeting will be held on Thursday evening at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm at the HALF



. At this meeting captain's the final schedule of play for the tournament be given out for the tournament.
