The sun shined all weekend long as competitive nature and exciting tennis matches filled the air at the USTA National Campus for the Adult 18 & Over 3.0/4.5 Sectional Championships.
Teams from across the state traveled to Lake Nona to compete for their spot at Nationals later this fall. With over 30 teams in attendance across the four divisions, there was nonstop tennis action.
One county in particular, Duval, had a great weekend as representatives from that area won a division and were finalists in two others.
South Florida also was well represented with Broward and Miami-Dade taking home titles. Hillsborough County also joined the winners’ circle to cap off an amazing few days of adult tennis.
Check out the full results to see how the matches went down.
