Oregon tennis tournaments: Summer 2012

Monday, June 11, 2012

Oregon Tennis Summer tennis tournament season is approaching quickly, so I’ve been checking OregonTennis.com and contacting city parks and recreation offices for tournament schedules, as usual. I try to play at least four community tennis tournaments in the Mid-Willamette Valley each summer.

Community tennis tournaments

Here are the tournaments I plan to enter this year, in the USTA 4.0+ division:

It looks like I’ll be playing tennis during four of five weekends in a row this year. The one weekend I’ll have off in July is conveniently when the Oregon Country Fair in Veneta (near Eugene) is happening, from July 13-15. So, my weekends will be packed for awhile.

I may also try to play in the Newberg Open in late August, if I feel up to the 70-minute drive each way. I’m not sure if the Dallas Community Tennis Tournament in late summer/early fall is going to happen or not.

Registration for each tennis tournament usually closes about a week before its start. Each PDF entry form should show up at OregonTennis.com a few weeks in advance of each tournament. For Woodburn and Albany, you can also contact the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, or use the links above.

USTA tennis tournaments

I’ve yet to play in any of these, but summer USTA-sanctioned tournaments in Corvallis (at Timberhill Tennis Club), Eugene, Ashland, Bend and elsewhere can be found at USTA TennisLink.
