USTA Leagues are part of a National adult recreational tennis program for men and women players. League play is offered in several skill levels from novice to advanced abilities. The Leagues offer singles and doubles team competition from local, district and sectional levels. Many of these offerings culminate with a National Championship played in one of several locations.
USTA Leagues are open to all USTA members, ages 18 and over, whose playing skills meet the eligibility standards of any one of seven levels of play in singles or doubles for men’s, women’s and mixed divisions. These are defined by the National Tennis Rating Program and include 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 and Open. Click here to learn more about NTRP.
