South Shore Seniors to Go to National Tennis Championship

 

Seven South Shore Seniors, six who are members of the Quincy Tennis Club, will represent New England at the 2011 USTA League 8.0 Super Senior National Tennis Championship in Surprise Arizona in April 2012.  This Championship pits the best teams from each of 17 USTA Sections against each other for the chance to win the national title.

 

To represent the New England Section the group first had to win the Cape Cod League in a series of matches for men aged 60+ played this summer at the Kings Grant Racquet Club in Cotuit Mass.  By winning that league they entered the New England Sectional Championship played in Beverley Ma. August 12-14.  There they defeated teams from Eastern Mass, Maine, Rhode Island and New Hampshire for the New England title
