HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Hilton Head Island teams won two state league championships and finished as finalists two other times during the USTA South Carolina 70 and Over State League Championship, which finished Saturday.

During one state league championship, two area teams even played each other for the title.

Meg Miner’s 3.0 team out of the Sea Pines Country Club won that matchup. “Thank you, girls. You all did fabulous!” Miner told her teammates after the match.

The “SPCC Senior Divas” take weekly lessons together from Matt Wuller, director of tennis at the Sea Pines Country Club. The women also have another moniker for themselves: “Matt’s Old Ladies.”

Dec McMullen’s 4.0 men’s team was the other Hilton Head team to win a USTA South Carolina 70 and Over State League Championship.

On Saturday, play also began for the 55 and Over State League Championship. The two championships will bring about 1,200 people to Hilton Head for recreational tennis.

Palmetto Dunes, Palmetto Dunes Centre Court, Sea Pines Country Club, South Beach, Long Cove, Moss Creek and Shipyard are hosting matches for the two state league championships. Palmetto Dunes is the official host site and will host all finals matches.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with so many other world-class facilities on and around Hilton Head Island,” said Jackie Reynecke, tournament director at Palmetto Dunes.

The 55 and Over State League Championship continues through Monday. Admission is free. Click here for more information.
