Adult League Teams Back from Nationals!
Philadelphia area teams are back from USTA Adult League Nationals. 
Overall, 5 teams from the Philadelphia Area Tennis District advanced to the USTA Adult League National Championships. While we had no winners, the Upper Dublin 4.5 Women’s team, captained by Linda Mudditt finished 4th overall. 
From the District, we also had ladies teams at 2.5 and 3.5. At 2.5, the Slice Aces, from Penn Oaks finished 2nd place in their flight with a 2-1 record. Melanie Himsworth was the captain of that team. Also from West Chester, we had the Lemon Drops, our 3.5 Section Champion, captained by Cindee White. The team played out of West Chester Golf and Country Club. They unfortunately finished 4th in their flight with an 0-3 record. 
The Men’s teams from PATD were both captained by Arland Hotchkiss, who sent teams at 4.5 and 5.0. Unfortunately both teams finished 4th in their flight, but did manage a match each with a 1-3 record.
