*Important note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, safety remains our top priority in the USTA Eastern section. In coordination with the USTA Medical Advisory Committee, USTA Eastern has developed a practical set of guidelines for venues and players to follow as League play proceeds. It is important to follow these guidelines, be responsible and adhere to local government and health official mandates, which can vary by region.

USTA Eastern Leagues
League play is organized according to the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) and by age group. Don't have an NTRP rating? New players can self-rate. Learn more about NTRP ratings | Self-rate to get started (You'll need to create a USTA account.)
Eastern League Descriptions
Mixed: The USTA League mixed doubles program allows men and women of different NTRP levels to play together, encouraging participants to play with their friends, family, and co-workers. Mixed is also divided by age group.
Tri-Level: Play doubles with friends on a team that includes three different NTRP levels. Each match consists of three doubles matches, one at each level (e.g. 4.5 doubles, 4.0 doubles, 3.5 doubles).
League captains are the largest group of volunteers in the USTA. Captains have multiple responsibilities, including recruiting players, distributing materials, relaying rules for matches and recording results. While much is asked of them, League play would not be possible without their dedication and service. Interested in putting together a team? Contact your local adult league coordinator (see USTA EASTERN LEAGUE STAFF, below) to learn more about captaining.
