2021 NATIONAL ADULT
The USTA is excited to share that it has adopted a simplified, nationwide structure for its adult tournaments, creating a standardized system and greater consistency for our players, coaches, tournament directors and officials.
Below are the major changes which have taken effect as of January 2021. Please check back for updates as additional information will be added to keep everyone informed.
- The new structure will utilize seven levels of events, ranging from Level 7 (Local) to Level 1 (National Championships) and a universal ranking system that will distribute points consistently across the country. Click here to view the 2020 adult shadow rankings.
- This nationwide system provides consistent tournament levels and standardized tournament operations for all events—regardless of location—replacing a system that was greatly dependent upon the region.
- The new system allows players to more easily compete across sections, as the levels will be standardized with an increased number of local events, providing even more playing opportunities for players.
