The U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) National Senior Women’s Hard Court Tennis Championships will be played May 15-21 at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club. Finals will be played May 20-21.
It will be a busy week at the club, which will also be hosting its 37th annual Spring Senior Championship in conjunction with the women’s events.
The women’s tournament is the fourth on the national tournament circuit play on clay, grass and indoors. Singles and doubles matches will be played in the 50 and over, 60 and over, 70 and over, 80 and over, and 90 and over age groups.
And while the men’s tournament isn’t a national event, it will feature many senior players who regularly compete in national tournaments, according to club officials. 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 attendance is 300-plus players in all events.
The La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club started the women’s events and has hosted them since inception. The men’s events started in the early ‘70s and have been held at the club ever since.
Admission is free and open to the public, and on-site parking is available for a nominal fee.
