DURHAM, NC (Sept. 17, 2012) – More than 1,200 tennis players from across North Carolina took part in the 2012 North Carolina USTA League Mixed Doubles State Championships September 13-16 in Durham.

By the conclusion of the tournament 11 teams emerged with a state championship.
Piedmont led all districts with three state champions, while Eno River and South East Tennis both recorded a pair of winners. The 11 state champions advanced to the Southern Sectionals next month in Macon, Ga. The sectional tournament will be held October 12-14.
