Florida Flex League Tennis Sweepstakes Winners; Leagues Starting

July 24, 2009 07:00 AM
Three Florida Flex League players were winners in the national Flex League Sweepstakes in July.

Susan Green of Sanford received one of three second prizes awarded nationally, a $300 gift certificate for Tennis Warehouse.

"Susan Green is a sweet, fun, and passionate tennis player that loves to play doubles," says Chelsea Maratta-Underwood, USTA league tennis organizer for Orlando Flex Leagues. "She has played in both seasons of the Orlando flex league and had a great time meeting new players while getting to practice doubles with one of her teammates from her Fall league."
Nazo Burgy, who just relocated from Florida to Lorton, Va., Henri Maria Stewart from the St. Pete/Clearwater area, and Tamara Mary Rothstein of Winter Garden won third-place prizes, a $150 gift certificate for Tennis Warehouse.

USTA Flex Leagues package league tennis into a flexible schedule so everyone, regardless of time constraints and ability, can play. Maybe you can't commit to every Wednesday at 8 p.m. Maybe Tuesday of next week works better for you -- or Thursday, the week after that. With Flex Leagues, it's your call.

The Flex League format groups players of similar ability together in an organized 7-10 week league that allows participants to schedule matches on their own terms. Flex Leagues can be either singles or doubles, all organized by NTRP ratings, ensuring fair and competitive matches.

Residents of the United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico who registered online at ustaflex.com between Jan, 1, 2009 and June 30, 2009 were automatically entered into the USTA Flex Leagues Sweepstakes. The Grand Prize winner was awarded a trip for two to Flushing, New York to attend the 2009 US Open, including roundtrip economy class air transportation, two nights' hotel accommodations, two tickets to the 2009 US Open, ground transportation and a $250 US Open gift card to be used for food and/or souvenirs.
