2016 USTA League Nationals schedule, Mobile a new location

Sectionals for USTA League are being played and completed in many sections leading up to Nationals.  That begs the question, when and where are Nationals for 2016?  This blog post will give you all those answers.

The past few years have seen Nationals predominantly played in the Southwest, specifically the Palm Springs area and Tucson or Phoenix Arizona.  This year, a new site is added to the rotation and it will make travel easier especially for those in the South but also the East as Mobile Alabama is hosting several divisions/levels.

I think one reason the Southwest has been chosen over the years is the high probability of dry weather which makes it far more likely than not that there won't be schedule issues due to weather.  While Mobile will be closer for many, what is the weather like there in October?  What do you think of this being a new location for Nationals?

But here we go with the schedule.  First 18 & Over.
