Zephyr Cove Tennis Club to host national event
Zephyr Cove Tennis Club will host the USTA Husband Wife Hard Court National Championships the week of Sept. 10-16.
Teams from all of the country are expected to descend upon the South Shore for this hard court tournament being held at Zephyr Cove for the second consecutive year.
“Although playing at the higher elevation proved to be an added challenge for some of the players last fall, the location in the pines and being walking distance to Lake Tahoe made it such a serene destination,” said Sheryl Herschman, tournament co-director.
This is one of four tournaments that is part of the Husband Wife Grand Slam Circuit. Each event is played at a different location and on a different surface: grass in Palm Springs, clay in Charlotte, N.C., and indoors in Denver. Champions receive a gold ball, finalists receive a silver ball, and the bronze ball is awarded to third-place.
Any husband-wife duo may participate. There are four divisions, three based on combined ages — 100, 120, 140 and open. The combined age of the team must equal or exceed the age requirement by the end of the calendar year. No age requirement in the open division.
