Here’s a quick look at all the different ways that you can test your game and play USTA Adult Tennis Tournaments:
Local and National Adult Tournaments
The USTA is excited to share that it has adopted a simplified nationwide structure, which creates a standardized system and greater consistency for our players, coaches, tournament directors and officials as of January 2021.
- You can now find and register for events right here on usta.com. ADVERTISEMENT USTA Adult Tennis Tournaments are no longer based in TennisLink.
- The new structure utilizes seven levels of events, ranging from Level 7 (Local) to Level 1 (National Championships) and a universal ranking system that distributes points consistently across the country.
- It 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 are standardized with an increased number of local events, providing even more playing opportunities for players.

Senior International Competition: 35 to 80+
For those top-level players who have always dreamed of representing the U.S. on the world stage, there are senior international events – the Young Seniors, Senior, and Super-Senior World and Individual Championships. These events are age-division events – ranging from 35 and over to 80 and over – and are the senior equivalents to the Fed Cup and Davis Cup competitions.
The NTRP rating system is a way to create level-based competition at the 18 & over and 50 & over age groups. NTRP National Champions are crowned in men’s and women’s singles and doubles at the 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5 levels in both 18 & over and 50 & over age groups.
