The Bucks/Mercer Adult Flex Leagues allow participants to schedule matches when and where it’s most convenient to them. ADVERTISEMENT Tennis leagues are great programs for new and returning players to hone their skills, those new to town who are looking to meet other players, and those seeking to match their skills against new competitors. League play options include singles, doubles, mixed, and co-ed divisions, and players typically receive a 6–8 match schedule to be played over a 6–8 week season. The Bucks County Tennis Association, Inc. (BCTA) offers USTA Flex Leagues that includes players from Mercer County, NJ, and Bucks County, PA.

Schedule: A schedule will made on weeks when you “should” play your match, with certain players designated as home and away. Schedule with your opponent when you want to play the match, which could be that week, or by the end of the season. Matches should be played outdoors.
Geographic Area: The league is open to anybody in the Chester, Montgomery and Delaware Counties. Matches are expected to be played in the area, so if you reside outside this area and want to participate, pick a place within the area to play the match.
Location of Matches: It’s an individual, flexible league, so you pick the location. Most players pick public places like parks or schools. Players are designated home, so they can pick a place to play, but most players pick places halfway between them and their opponent. We expect to divide flights geographically to alleviate travel time if flights get big enough.
PLEASE Note that if flights do not fill up, you will be given the options to move flights, move seasons, or be given a refund minus a small processing fee.
