La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club hosts Senior Women championships next week

The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club will host the United States Tennis Association (USTA) National Senior Women’s Hard Court Tennis Championships on May 9 through May 15.

The tournament is the first or second leg of the national tournament circuit in each age group. Every age group has national championships played on three other surfaces: clay, grass and indoors. Events offered will include both singles and doubles in the 50 and over, 60 and over, 70 and over, 80 and over, and 90 and over age groups.

The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club’s 39th Annual Spring Senior Championships for men will also take place that week in conjunction with the women’s events. Although the men’s events are not national championships, they will feature many senior players who regularly compete in national tournaments. The men’s events will include singles and doubles for 60 and over, 65 and over, 70 and over, 75 and over, 80 and over, and 85 and over age groups. Expected total participation is 300-plus players.

The women’s events are national championships and attract the best players from all over the country in each age group, making this field of competitors the strongest in the country in each age division. The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club started each of these events and has hosted them since inception. The men’s events started in the early 1970s and have been held at the Club ever since.

Admission to this week-long tournament is free and open to the public with a snack bar and dining facility on-site. Please note there is a nominal fee for on-­site parking. Draws will be posted at the Beach Club and will be available via www.LJBTC.com. Daily matches will start at 8 a.m.
