2017 40 & Over League State Championship

From Thursday, June 22nd to Sunday, June 25th, almost 80 USTA League teams gathered in Winston-Salem to compete in the 40 & Over State Championship.

This Round-Robin tournament took place at 14 different outdoor facilities across Winston-Salem and the surrounding areas. Due to rainy conditions, play was delayed Friday morning and matches were moved indoors on Saturday afternoon. Thanks to indoor facilities in Clemmons, Elon, Greensboro, and High Point, the tournament was able to continue seamlessly, despite the adverse weather.

We would like to recognize all the facilities that hosted tournament matches, and give a special thank you to all the volunteers who helped coordinate this event. Without their help and support, this tournament would not have been possible! A full facility list can be seen below…

While the competition was fierce throughout the tournament, participants were invited to attend a Player Social held at the Hawthorne Inn and Conference Center on both Thursday and Friday evening. During these social events, players were able to mingle while enjoying free beer from a local, craft brewery, heavy appetizers, vendors, and games.
