HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The rain couldn’t stop nine teams from around the state from winning state league championships Saturday as the USTA South Carolina Combo League Championships continued.

Among the teams that won titles Saturday: three squads from the Tennis Association of Hilton Head Island. The association had winning teams at the 55 and Over Men Levels 6.5 and 7.5 and at the 55 and Over Women Level 8.5.

The Hilton Head Island association has now won four of the 10 state titles that have been awarded during the first three days of the combo tournament, the largest USTA South Carolina championship. By Monday evening, 28 state titles will have been won at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, the host site of the championships.

Weather did affect the tournament Saturday. Rain delayed the start of play Saturday, and rain and lightning suspended play Saturday evening. Players whose matches were suspended Saturday evening are scheduled to resume their matches at 7:30 a.m., Sunday, at their respective sites.

The tournament is being held at 12 sites on Hilton Head Island and is free to attend.

Winners of the tournament will advance to the Combo Doubles Southern Sectional Championships early next year. USTA South Carolina scores can be found here. View more photos from the USTA South Carolina championships at our Facebook page here.
