Five Sites Hosting Major State Tournament
The United States Tennis Association is continuing to use Knoxville to host the 2013 United States Tennis Association (USTA) Tennessee Adult State Tennis Championships. The 2013 State Championships will continue play June 21-23, 2013.
Championship teams from nine (9) cities/regions across Tennessee are invited to participate in the event. Matches have taken place at five (5) tennis sites throughout the city including the Knoxville Racquet Club, Cedar Bluff Racquet Club, Smoky Mountain Tennis Academy, Tyson Tennis Center and West Hills Park.
Approximately 1,100 adult tennis players 18+ and 40+ are taking part.
Tournament matches for June 21-23 will be played at the Knoxville Racquet Club. Tournament headquarters will be located at Knoxville Racquet Club.
A major factor of Greater Knoxville Tennis Association (GKTA) securing Knoxville as the site of the 2013 Tennessee Adult State Tennis Championships was the major renovation of the West Hills Tennis Center, one of the city’s newly renovated public tennis courts. Video shots could include the newly surfaced and expanded courts, the new clubhouse building, and the engraved brick pavers by the clubhouse entrance which shows the community's support for the project. For more information about the West Hills Tennis Center Project, visit www.gkta.usta.com/westhills/west_hills_news/.
Admission is free and open to the public for all matches and sites. For additional information and a full schedule of match times, visit http://tnadultleaguechamps.com.
