Lexington County Recreation & Aging Commission has been selected as the host of the 2014 and 2015 USTA Southern Jr. Team Tennis Sectional Championships, Tournament Director Mary Hatfield announced today.
The tournament will be played at the Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center, Cayce, S.C.; the Lexington County Tennis Complex and Ball Park Road Sports Complex, both in Lexington, S.C. The dates of the tournaments are Aug. 15-17, 2014 and Aug. 21-23, 2015.
The USTA announced that the Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center received the USTA’s highest tennis facility honor, being named the 2013 Featured Facility Award winner, last month. "Great tennis facilities like the Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center help us to grow the game at the grassroots level, and we are proud to recognize them for their ongoing impact on the sport of tennis," said Kurt Kamperman, Chief Executive, Community Tennis, USTA. 
In 2003, the Lexington County Tennis Complex received the USTA Facility of the Year Award for Large Facilities. It also received the Racquet Sports Industry magazine’s 2004 Municipal Facility of the Year Award.
"We are extremely proud to bring our annual Jr. Team Tennis championships to three great locations in Lexington County," Hatfield said. "We know that Jorge Andrew and his team will be a great host for our growing three-day tournaments." Andrew is the Lexington County Recreation & Aging Commission Director of Tennis Operations.
USTA’s junior team program supports coed teams in four age levels. The teams, which represent various clubs, parks, recreational departments and organizations, have finished at the top of their local leagues played in 10 and Under, 12 and Under, 14 and Under, and 18 and Under levels. Within each age level, teams are divided into two different skill levels: intermediate and advanced.
At least 63 teams from throughout Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee are expected to play each year. Typically at least eight players, managers, coaches and parents per team travel to the tournaments, with some teams brining more than 12 persons.
