Adult Tournament Resources:
We offer three types of adult tournaments:
The National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) is the official system for providing level-based competition for USTA Adult Leagues and NTRP Tournaments. The primary goal of NTRP is to help all tennis players enjoy the game by providing a method of classifying skill levels for more compatible matches and tournament play.
The rating categories are generalizations about skill levels. Players must have a USTA rating to enter sanctioned NTRP events, and they may "play up" in divisions .5 higher than their NTRP rating. Players are not permitted to play events below their rating or more than .5 above their rating. If you do not have a self-rating, click here.
Many tournaments are categorized by age or "open”. An Age Division tournament simply requires players to be a minimum age and is not based on NTRP. There are Age Division tournaments all over the country that range in both court surfaces and competitiveness–from competing at local tournaments to competing for the coveted Gold Ball at a National Championship.
Open tournaments are open to any and all USTA Members. Typically, players who are equivalent to a 4.0 or higher will participate, however, as the term "open" implies, anyone can play as long as they are a current USTA Member.
Come enjoy competition against tennis players age 50 and over by registering for a tournament on the New England Senior Sectional.
