Approximately 964 tennis players from across the state are expected to participate in the 2017 United States Tennis Association Adult Mixed Doubles League State Championships, which will be held September 29 – October 2, 2017 in Florence, SC. The championships, originally scheduled September 8 – 11, were rescheduled for this weekend due to Hurricane Irma.

The four-day event will feature 87 teams from all over the state, including Aiken, Beaufort/Bluffton, Charleston, Columbia, Florence, Greenville, Greenwood, Hilton Head Island, Lexington, Myrtle Beach, Rock Hill, and Spartanburg.

A Player’s Reception held Friday evening is sponsored by The Florence Tennis Association, a volunteer-based affiliate of the USTA.
