The terrific fall line-up follows on the heels of the USTA Virginia Senior District Championships played at Wintergreen in August, and July’s very successful USTA/Mid Atlantic Level 2 Boys and Girls 16 Clay Court Challenger which was noted by participants as some of their best-ever clay court play.
