USTA National Tennis Championship

Posted: Updated:

LA JOLLA (CBS 8) - La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club is inviting you to watch tennis pros this week. The USTA National Tennis Championship is free to spectators.

The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, one of California's most treasured beachfront resorts for more than 75 years, is hosting the 41st annual United States Tennis Association (USTA) National Men's and Women's 40 Hard Court Championships.

Competition is slated for men and women in singles, doubles and mixed doubles events for players 40 and older (players must turn 40 in this calendar year to be eligible). Participants will include former touring pros and the nation's strongest players in this age group.

La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club welcomes tennis spectators to view the tournament with free admission. This seven-day event will feature both singles and doubles matches on Monday, Dec. 2 and the competitions will continue throughout the week.

Also on the agenda is the USTA National Father and Son and Grandfather and Grandson Hard Court Doubles Championships beginning Friday, Dec. 6, with matches concluding Sunday, Dec. 8.

The Father and Son championship has been held continuously at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club since 1959, and attracts the top father and son tennis teams in the nation.

The Grandfather/Grandson Championship is a relatively new competitive division that started at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club just a few years ago.

Recently designated one of the Top 100 Tennis Resorts in the world by Tennis Resorts Online, the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club's reputation as a top tennis destination started in 1942 when it attracted its first major tournament, the Pacific Coast Men's Doubles Championship.

The Club will be hosting the 125th edition of The Pacific Coast Mens' Doubles Championships in February 2014, and the USTA National Hard Court Championships for Womens' 50-90 age groups in May 2014.
