75 & Over Invitational Championship, league state championship dates announced

January 22, 2016 12:35 PM

COLUMBIA, S.C. – USTA South Carolina is excited to announce the dates and host cities of its 2016 league state championships. The championships bring together thousands of tennis players from across the state to compete for bragging rights and opportunities to advance to regional USTA championships. The host cities also enjoy the events, as thousands of players stay in area hotels and dine at area restaurants.

In 2016, the 36th year of the USTA League program, the first USTA South Carolina league state championship will take place in April on Hilton Head Island. The year’s final league state championship will be held in November at Charleston.

“We’re looking forward to another year of exceptional league state championships with our players, captains and host cities,” said Graham Cox, USTA South Carolina executive director.

In 2015, more than 8,600 players from across the state competed in the USTA South Carolina’s nine league state championships.

In 2016, USTA South Carolina will host eight traditional league state championships, in which teams will qualify by playing well in their local leagues. This year, though, for the first time, USTA South Carolina also will host an invitational championship for its players ages 75 and older.

In past years, USTA South Carolina had hosted a league state championship for those players, who qualified for the event by playing well in their local leagues. But after many conversations with longtime league players and captains, the players and USTA South Carolina agreed that an invitational would provide more play opportunities for the state’s 75 and over players.

More information about the invite and the championships will be posted when it’s available at
