Adult teams who have qualified by winning their local leagues, will be competing over three days at three different playing sites in El Paso, including the Ellis Tennis Center, El Paso Tennis & Swim Club and Tennis West.

The main host site for this year’s 2012 USTA Southwest Adult League Section Championships will be the Ellis Tennis Center. Formerly the El Paso Youth Tennis Center, the 23-court facility located in Northeast El Paso has not only changed names, but been updated and renovated.

The new Ellis Tennis Center has undergone quite a facelift in the last couple of months, with an improved pro shop area, 23 resurfaced courts (all to US Open blue) that includes a 10 and Under Tennis dedicated stadium court, shade structures on all courts, as well as a spacious new player lounge area.

Another perk is having video cameras on all courts that should really benefit tournament directors and families, who can actually watch matches live on the multiple TV screens inside the lounge.

The courts are located at 4770 Woodrow Bean, El Paso, Texas  79924. The phone number for the complex is (915) 751-1983. Click HERE for directions from the host hotel.
