League win

Last weekend saw the end of the Spring season of the USTA Tennis League here in Huntsville. Our team (Alexy) won the league for the first time finishing with a record of 20 wins and 2 losses (tied with Charlie Abney's team, but with more individual wins). It was a very competitive hard fought season - all matches I played (save for one) were singles, - I finished with a 14-1 season - the only loss being a blown 3-6 6-0 3-6 to Clyde Wilder. Our captain Tommy Alexy finished unbeaten through the Fall and Spring seasons and is almost sure of getting his NTRP rating increased to 4.0, when ratings are announced later in the summer. We are in the men's adult 3.5 league.

We have been invited to play in the State Championship next month. Not sure I can make it, but would still be interesting to see how we match up against the best teams in the state ...

Of course, winning in spring gives us bragging rights for 6 months till the start of the fall season, unlike the 6 weeks between fall and spring seasons :)

On the USTA website, you can search by our team name (Alexy), to see overall standings, or search by name to get individual records.
