Each year USTA MAS and USTA National provide opportunities for players to benchmark their ability level through a series of regional and national team competitions.  These events are some of the most historically prestigious and longest-running team-based competitions in the nation.  An invitation to play in a sectional team event is an honor extended by the section to its best adult players. The location of each cup rotates on an annual basis amongst the participating sections. For more information click here.




Rankings are generated once per year and are based upon calendar year play, with results published no later than the end of January of the following year. To qualify for a final ranking in our section a player must play at least one Mid-Atlantic Section Championship tournament or a National Level tournament held in MAS and must have a minimum of 25 ranking points. Standings are published monthly and include results in the most recent 12-months play (12-Month Rolling Standing List**). The only requirement to be included in the 12-Month Rolling Standing List is to have at least one match win. Both Rankings and Standings will be based upon a player’s best four tournaments.
