BMW Combo Doubles Sectional Championships Proves Triumphant

January 25, 2005 11:58 AM

Over 1,700 Southern Combo Doubles tennis players converged on the city of Mobile for the 2004 Sectional Championships held January 21-24, 2005. In its fourth year, the largest four-day tournament in the world had over 165 teams offering 14 adult and 8 senior divisions. The tournament was headquartered at the Mobile Tennis Center, and players from over 100 cities in the section got to experience the camaraderie and competition of this unique doubles championship.

This event not only offered high quality tennis, but also gave the participants and their families a chance to have a little fun off the courts. During their time off, players were given the opportunity to test-drive both BMW’s and Mini Cooper’s. They also enjoyed a player’s party at the USS Alabama Battleship, hosted by Scott and Lorraine Novak of the Mobile Tennis Center.

Southern Combo Doubles is the USTA Southern Section’s fastest growing adult league with over 37,000 players. “This program is open to women and men 19 years and older,” said Marilyn Sherman, USTA Director of Adult Tennis. “Participation in the BMW combo doubles’ series has doubled in the last five years, from 16,000 to over 34,000 participants.” The 2005 BMW Combo Doubles Sectional Championships will return to Mobile, January 20-23, 2006.
