First USTA SC State League Championships Earned on HHI

Playing close to home apparently helps.

Beaufort County teams swept the USTA South Carolina Adult 75 and Over State League Championships on Saturday on Hilton Head Island.

Two teams from Hilton Head Island, and a team from the Coastal Carolina Tennis Association won the three state league championships in the 75 and over group.

The titles were the first USTA SC State League Championships won in 2014 and concluded play for the 75 and over group this weekend.

Seventeen teams and 175 players from across South Carolina participated in the group’s championships, which started Thursday morning.

South Carolina is the only state in the nine-state USTA Southern Section that offers formal league play and state championships for its 75 and older players.

USTA SC tennis continues through Monday on Hilton Head Island with the Adult 55 and Over State League Championships.
