If you remember, the USTA (in their infinite wisdom) is/was planning to do away nationally with the 60 and over 4.5 league division… in favor of having a 55+ and a 70 and over (4.0 level only). Well, some things are changing – in Florida at least.
Naples friend and USTA Florida Collier Region 7 senior coordinator, Bob Baker reports the Florida Leagues Council has voted approval for the 2013 league year to have the 70+ league BE CHANGED IN FLORIDA to a 65+ that would start next October.
To be consistent throughout the state, and have the best competitive format, straight level of play will be offered: 3.0 league, 3.5 league, 4.0 league, 4.5 league
Council member Linda Kleitch says, “USTA Florida has become a leader in the Leagues. I am still on the Council and have great hopes for the USTA in our area. I support our positive changes as we on the Council work together for the betterment of our leagues.”
What is happening in your region and nationally??
