Eight USPTA members to represent US at ITF Super-Seniors World Team Championships


Eight of the 40 players representing the United States at the ITF Super-Seniors World Team Championships are members of the United States Professional Tennis Association. The teams will represent the U.S. at the 33rd International Tennis Federation (ITF) Super-Seniors World Team Championships, which will be held Sept. 9-14 in Austria and the Czech Republic.

The tournament is the senior tennis equivalent of the Davis Cup and Fed Cup competitions, with top American tennis players representing their country in the 60-, 65-, 70-, 75-, and 80-and-older age groups. The ITF Super-Seniors World Team Championships is the most prestigious team event on the ITF Seniors circuit.

The U.S. will enter the event as the defending champions in seven divisions: for the men in the Von Cramm Cup, Britannia Cup, Bitsy Grant Cup and Gardnar Mulloy Cup; and in the women for the Alice Marble Cup, Althea Gibson Cup and Queens’ Cup. Following the ITF Super-Seniors World Team Championships, the World Individual Championships will take place Sept. 15-22, also in Austria.
