Close-Up: The Tennis Scene In Ann Arbor, MI
The Ann Arbor Parks & Recreation system maintains over two dozen courts. With 13,000 players annually, the Southeast Michigan Adult League Program was the largest in the Midwest for the 12th consecutive year as of winter 2016.
The Southeast Michigan District USTA recently reported an increased level of interest in single day competitions in the Ann Arbor area for both adult and junior players. To cater to the wishes of their members, from January 2017 on they will be making a focused effort on providing more single day events rather than multiple day tournaments.
These events will include: Junior “Single Day Showdowns,” which will offer ranking points at the District and Section Level, and Adult “Game, Set, Money” events, which will offer a series of three events that conclude in a fourth, prize money event.
