13 Section Champions Crowned at 2013 Combo Doubles Southern Sectional Championships

March 9, 2014 06:03 PM

SOUTH CAROLINA, GEORGIA LED WITH FOUR CHAMPIONS

USTA Southern crowned 13 champions during the 2013 Combo Doubles Southern Sectional Championships March 7-9 in Dothan, Ala.

Combo Doubles is one of the fastest growing and most popular USTA leagues in the Southern Section. Play consists of two teammates on court having a combined National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) rating that does not exceed the level in which the team competes. More information can be found on the tournament’s website, www.southerncombo.com. This tournament hosted teams that represented their states during the 2013 season.

South Carolina led the section’s nine states with four champions and three finalists while Georgia had four champs and two finalists. In a contrast of population sizes, tiny Calhoun, Ga., and metropolitan Memphis, Tenn., each had two victories.

Matches were played at the Westgate Tennis Center, the Azalea Swim & Tennis Club, the Dothan Country Club and the Wiregrass Tennis Courts.
