Major USTA National Championship Tournament at The Polo Club in Boca Raton

July 18 marks the 22nd year that The Polo Club of Boca Raton will host the USTA Girls' 12 Clay Court Championships. The competition has produced such tennis greats at Lindsay Davenport and Jennifer Capriati.

Championed by Tennis Director, Jean Mills, The Polo Club will host 128 of the top-ranked female tennis players ages 12 and younger from across the United States. This years' top seeded player is
Sofia Kenin from Pembroke Pines, FL.

The Polo Club does more than just provide the facility. Its membership is the source of countless volunteers needed to help run the tournament; it hosts the opening ceremonies and extends its staff and facilities to assure complete coverage of the tournament's needs.

The Polo Club, at one time the residence of tennis greats such as Stephanie Graff and Chris Everett, prides itself as one of the finest tennis facilities in Southeast Florida, and has been host to big-name tennis events, such as the Andy Roddick Charity Event, Virginia Slims, Pro Celebrity and the ITF.
