2012 Adult Slam Series Champions

November 12, 2012 08:21 PM
Congratulations to our 2012 USTA Southwest Slam Series Champions. This year marked the first year of this four-tournament all-surface series of adult events in ages groups from 35 and up. The idea was to promote tournament play for adults on a variety of surfaces. 
The tournaments that made up the 2012 USTA Southwest Adult Slam Series presented by Active Forever were: 

Each of these tournaments were "Level 1" status events on the Southwest circuit, meaning they each were given the highest point totals toward adult rankings. Players received rankings point totals based on the number of points they garnered at each of the Southwest Slam Series events. To be eligible for this Adult Slam Series standings list, players had to compete in at least two of the four events.

More than 400 players participated in these series of tournaments, which will continue in 2013.
