HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – USTA Southern crowned seven champions of the 2016 USTA League 65 & Over Southern Sectional Championships, played here Dec. 2-4.

Georgia was represented with three champions from Albany, Columbus and Roswell. In the Women’s 3.5 championship final, the B team from Greer, S.C. defeated the A team from Columbia, S.C. 2-1. Because USTA Southern is made up of nine states, a tenth team is selected to fill out the two brackets, with the two top teams facing off in the final.

There were 59 men’s and women’s teams with more than 527 players competing in NTRP levels 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 and 9.0 combined. Matches were played at the Palmetto Dunes Racquet Club (tournament headquarters), Center Court at Palmetto Dunes, South Beach Racquet Club, Shipyard - Van Der Meer Tennis, Sea Pines Country Club and Wexford.
