Teams from all over S.C. grab 18 and Over titles

May 26, 2014 11:45 AM

AIKEN, S.C. – Six adult tennis teams from across the state won USTA South Carolina 18 and Over State League Championships here this weekend.

The teams from the Grand Strand, Upstate and Midlands can now continue their winning ways at upcoming sectional championships.

The winning 4.5-rated South Carolina teams will play their sectionals close to home; Lexington will host the USTA League 18 and Over Southern Sectional Championships, scheduled for July 25-27.

The winning 4.0-rated and 5.0-rated South Carolina teams can advance to their sectional championships in Auburn, Alabama, the same weekend.

(The National Tennis Rating Program rates players from 1 to 7, with beginners starting at 1.)

USTA SC 18 and Over State League Championships, levels 4.0 – 5.0, started Saturday and finished Monday in Aiken.

About 50 teams and more than 500 players participated during the championships.

It was the second consecutive weekend that USTA SC brought a state league championship to Aiken. Last weekend, the 40 and Over State League Championships for all competition levels was here as well.

Seven facilities teamed together to host both championships, which brought more than 1,500 people from across the state to Aiken.

The players shopped the city’s quaint downtown, dined at the city’s many restaurants and rested well in the area’s hotels.

This year marks the fifth consecutive year Aiken and USTA SC have partnered together to host at least one state league championship.
