Southern Senior Cup Team Championships

June 5-8, 2014
Huntsville, AL

The Annual Southern Senior Cup Team Championships continues to be the USTA Southern Section's crown jewel of adult competition in the South. Up to 300 of the top players will go to Huntsville, AL, to represent their state in team competition in Men's and Women's 35-75 age divisions. Huntsville Tennis Center with 24 clay courts offered a beautiful setting for this prestigious event.

In 2012 Mississippi’s fantastic finish of 33 match wins and 9 team wins brought high expectations in 2013 that were met and surpassed as our 55 men’s team of Ken Koelling, Mark Thompson, and Marty Pearson won the 55 division winning all 4 team matches without losing a set. The 75 men’s team of Albert Lyle and Ken Toler won 3rd place; only losing a close match to top seeded and eventual winner Louisiana in the semi finals. Mississippi women teams in the 45, 55, 65, and 75’s played extremely well, being very competitive. Both men’s and women’s team captains Marty Pearson and Linda Thompson are anxious to get started in 2014. Adult Committee members Hap Davis, Emilia Viljoen, and Jeffrey Farris have started plans to get in touch with our Mississippi players.
