Competition is slated for men and women in singles, doubles and mixed doubles events for players 40 and over (players must reach or exceed the age of 40 at any time in this calendar year to be eligible). The annual tennis event attracts players from across the U.S., including former touring professionals and the nation’s strongest players in this age group.
“We are expecting an outstanding field of competitors for this year’s USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships,” said Tournament Director Bill Kellogg. “I encourage all interested players to complete their tournament entry as soon as possible before Sunday’s deadline.”
The week-long national tennis tournament will feature both singles and doubles matches starting on Monday, November 28 and the event will continue throughout the week. Also on the agenda is the USTA National Father/Son and Grandfather/Grandson Hard Court Doubles Championships beginning Friday, December 2, with matches concluding Sunday, December 4.
The Father/Son Championship has been held continuously at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club since 1959, and attracts the top father and son tennis teams in the nation. The Grandfather/Grandson Championship is a relatively new competitive division that started at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club in 2003. Draws will be posted at the Beach Club and will be available via LJBTC.com. There is no spectator admission charge during the tournament and onsite parking is available for a nominal fee.
