USTA Eastern Leagues 

USTA League tennis is the largest adult competitive tennis league in the country and is available across the entire USTA Eastern Section in a variety of divisions and age groups. League play is a great way to meet friends, stay active and improve your tennis game. Top teams will have the opportunity to compete in regional and sectional championships, with the winners of sectionals in each division advancing to USTA League National Championships in the fall.


NTRP Ratings

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

Adult: USTA League tennis is an adult recreational tennis program for all players. Local league play is divided according to age and NTRP ratings (e.g. 18 & Over 3.0 Men's, 40 & Over 4.0 Women's). Anyone 18 and over can participate. Regional winners in each division advance to play teams from across the Eastern section at the USTA Eastern Sectional Championships.


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

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. One USTA Eastern captain shares her "rewarding" experience | Get to Know A League Captain feature series | Captain's Corner
