• Gainesville, Pinellas Co., Seminole Co., Volusia Co. Win USTA Florida Jr. Team Tennis Fall Section Titles

    The USTA Florida Jr. Team Tennis Fall Section Championship drew 62 teams to the Florida Tennis Center in Daytona Beach on Dec. 11-12, 2010.  The Gainesville area sent seven teams, who competed in beginner to advanced divisions, and Gainesville teams won two of the six division titles (12 and Under Advanced, and 14 and Under Advanced). Congratulations to all who competed!

    “Saturday was a beautiful day of tennis,” said USTA Florida Team Tennis Coordinator Michelle Willis. “Sunday was halted around 11:30 a.m. when the rain, 20 m.p.h. winds and cold front came in. The matches had to be called and the tournament cut short, with division winners determined by game-winning percentage.”

    In the 12-and-under division, Pinellas County’s “Largo Hulk Smash” finished ahead of Dade County’s “Ocean Club Int.” (a first-time team) for the Intermediate title, and Gainesville’s “G-Power”, coached by So-Mei Louie, won the Advanced title, edging runners-up “Daytona Heavy Hitters” from Volusia County.
