Flagstaff Tennis Association (FTA) held their annual USTA tournament for the second year at the NAU Tennis Complex.

The 2018 Flagstaff Open and Junior Tennis Tournament was held June 29 to July 1 at Northern Arizona University. We had a great turnout, with 153 players participating in 215 matches! Hosted in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona, this annual event is a USTA sanctioned tournament for all players. For adults, there were Open divisions, as well as NTRP singles, doubles, and mixed doubles events. For juniors, there were singles, doubles, and mixed doubles events by age division.

The tournament is the annual fundraiser for the Flagstaff Tennis Association's tennis activities in the community (including summer tennis camps for kids and team tennis).

With elevations over 7000', Flagstaff's cool, mountain air and abundant sunshine serves up excellent conditions for summer tennis in the Southwest U.S.
