USTA Florida Tennis Restructured 2013 League Calendar Released

April 13, 2012 08:28 AM
League_Realignment_2013The USTA Florida League Department has released the 2013 Florida League Championships dates for what will be the debut year of age group restructuring for USTA Leagues across the U.S.

The current monikers "Senior" and "Super Senior" will be replaced instead by a more representative grouping based on age -- 18-over, 40-over, 55-over, and 65-over. USTA League research and focus group results predict a significant increase in the coming years in league participation, with changes designed to better align age groups with current and future league populations.

"The adult league regional championships will not be offered in 2013 in Florida, so all local league champion teams will advance directly to the adult section championship for their age division," said USTA Florida Director of Leagues Sandy Marshall. "I believe we are going to see many more close competitive matches at all NTRP levels in both the adult and mixed divisions of play under this national realignment."
 
As they had previously, adult players will continue to compete by NTRP rating within each division. The 18-over and the 40-over divisions will feature both singles and doubles, while the 55-over and 65-over will consist of three doubles positions. The Mixed age divisions will not change and will continue to offer three doubles lines of play.
 
The following is the newly-released 2013 USTA Florida Section Championship calendar:

April 12-14 -- Adult 65 & Over League Section Championship

April 19-21 -- Mixed 55 & Over League Section Championship

May 3-5 -- Adult 55 & Over League Section Championship
