8/1/14-8/3/14 Tucson City Championship

August 01, 2014

50 S. Alvernon Way

Tucson is excited to host its City Championship at the Jim Reffkin Tennis Center August 1-3. While Reffkin will continue its normal busy schedule of tournaments and events, this intermediate and advanced-level event truly stands in a class of its own. This blockbuster championship is where sweat turns to gold and the elite are born. This is about standing in the company of a few, hiking towards the top of the mountain until only you are left, looking out at the city below you and realizing you have come among the stars.

The Old West still courses through our Tucson blood; we are competitive and driven by ambition, and here is where we assert ourselves. We play a great sport that values the balance of force and technique- this championship brings out the best of our A-game as we yearn to prove ourselves when the lights are the brightest in our bright city. This USTA sanctioned tournament is where stars become superstars. 

Like the stars in the sky, this tournament has a huge number- it's one of the largest USTA adult tournaments in the Southwest with around 250-300 players! Due to its size, we require all players participate in no more than two of the following divisions: Singles, Men's or Women's Doubles, and Mixed Doubles. NTRP levels 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, and 4.5 are offered. Singles matches will be in the morning, doubles in the afternoon, and mixed doubles in the evening. If you are in need of a partner, please register at least one week before the deadline (July 28th.) The men's singles final is 12 pm on August 12 and the women's singles final is 10 am on August 12.
