June 28, 2021 - We are excited to host our third national tournament of the year with an event called, the USTA Battle of the Mississippi. This unique event is a mixed team event. Each team is comprised of one female and one male, each playing a singles match and a mixed doubles match. The best 2 out of 3 matches advances to the next round. There are a total of 24 teams from three sections, USTA Northern, USTA Missouri Valley and USTA Midwest. "This format is similar to a national tournament that Lisa and I have run for the past 6 years called the Dominant Duo. The difference is the mixed doubles component. It should be a great event and being a USTA Level 2 tournament, it will draw in some great talent," states David Minihan, Director of Tennis.
