2021 Leagues / An Overview

Research during the pandemic has concluded that tennis is one of the safest activities around; and one that incorporates so many benefits for those who play the sport. This is great news and while more good news comes our way with the approval of vaccines, USTA Colorado and Providers statewide need to plan knowing that 2021 still holds plenty of uncertainties. By no means is this pandemic behind us.


We have established a plan for our league program based on a host of factors, as this pandemic has had a very substantial impact on our operations (in 2020 and 2021). In light of the pandemic, our efforts are focused on trying to provide a full league menu for our players statewide. We have a robust league menu for a reason and each unique league has an appeal for those who participate. 



We are not in a position due to all the uncertainties coupled with the financial impact of the pandemic on our operations, to host playoffs for all of our leagues in 2021


Changes for 2021

District Championships

USTA Colorado plans to offer District Championships for the following leagues that fall under the USTA National Advancement track:



All other leagues will conclude at the end of their respective local league seasons.


"Plus" Levels no longer offered for all Local (CTA) Leagues

A 5.0 level will be added to each of these leagues in place of the "plus" levels. This includes:



National League Changes / "Plus" Levels no longer offered

There will no longer be “plus" levels, such as 5.0+ in the USTA Adult 18 & Over league or 4.5+ in the USTA Adult 40 & Over league.



New Level offered for USTA Adult 18 & Over and USTA Adult 40 & Over

To replace "plus" levels, an "Open" level has been added to the USTA Adult 18 & Over league and a 5.0 level has been added to the USTA Adult 40 & Over league. These new levels will not have National Advancement for 2021.


Sectional advancement may occur depending on the number of teams from other Districts within the Intermountain Section.


2020 Year-End Ratings

A decision was made by the USTA Board not to run year-end ratings for 2020. Match results from 2020 will be added into the 2021 year-end calculation.
