USTA New England's Social Tennis League offers the opportunity for young professionals ages 21-40 throughout New England to meet new people through the game of tennis. This league is a great way to improve your skills or get back into tennis in a fun, social environment. Our league places players on co-ed teams to play matches each week of the season. The first night is a hit around so players can get some practice in before matches start. Each league session concludes with awards and prizes given out to the winners and captains. 

 

Our Social Tennis League has four levels of play to do our best to get you fun and competitive matches. The four levels are beginner, recreational, intermediate and advanced. The beginner level is instruction based and is for new players or those who are looking for instruction on how to improve their skills. ADVERTISEMENT Recreational is open to all playing levels but is primarily for lower to mid-level players (a 2.5 to 3.5 in USTA rating terms). This league is the most social and great for players new to our league. The intermediate level is for higher level players, generally a 3.5 or 4.0 in USTA rating terms, that still want to be social but also want solid, more competitive matches. The advanced league is for our highest level players and while still social, the focus is on high-quality tennis, and you must be at least a 4.0 in USTA rating terms to join. If you are an advanced player, a 4.5 or above in USTA ratings, please sign up for the intermediate or advanced leagues so matches are not lopsided in the recreational league.  If you don’t have a USTA rating and are unsure of which league might be best for you, feel free to email us at: socialtennis@newengland.usta.com.
