Due to the rising numbers surrounding the COVID-19 virus, USTA Florida has made the difficult decision to postpone the Adult Mixed 40 & Over Sectional Championships, which were scheduled for August 22-24 and August 29-31, 2020 at the USTA National Campus in Orlando. This was a very difficult decision to make. However, the safety and well-being of our players, their families and event personnel are the first and foremost consideration of USTA Florida when hosting events.
We have scheduled new dates for the Adult Mixed 40 & Over 7.0/9.0 Division on October 3-5, 2020. Registration for this event will begin after August 24, 2020.
We will continue to monitor developments, including state and local guidelines, and issue guidance on future Sectional Championship events on a case-by-case basis.
For immediate questions or concerns please contact Christine Ducey at (407) 917-8676 or firstname.lastname@example.org
