USTA League Tennis is the country’s largest recreational tennis league with more than 320,000 tennis players taking part each year. It provides organized, structured team matches for men and women of all ability levels. Levels are based on the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) and range from beginner (2.5) to advanced (5.0). All teams are set up according to players' NTRP rating and players are assured of facing someone of comparable ability. USTA League Tennis features local, area and sectional playoffs, culminating in a national championship. If you love tennis, you'll love USTA League!

 

League play starts at the local level for players 18 and over. Top teams from local league play earn the chance to compete in district and/or sectional championships with the winners of sectionals advancing to USTA League National Championships. ADVERTISEMENT Some sections also offer other leagues such as combo (different NTRP levels playing doubles together), tri-level (3 lines of different NTRP levels), and leagues just for 18-39 year olds.

 

League offerings vary from section to section but most offer NTRP-level based play by age group. New players can self-rate to obtain an NTRP (National Tennis Rating Program) rating (please note that a USTA Account is needed to obtain a self-rating). Once you have an NTRP rating, you are ready to find a league and start playing! 

 

There are many different options based on your level, age and interests. Contact Nancy Lundberg at lundberg@northern.usta.com or (952) 358-3286 (outside the Twin Cities) or Taylor Heltne at taylor@northern.usta.com or (952) 358-3287 (inside the Twin Cities) to find what leagues are offered in your area. Please see below for information on getting started and a listing of leagues currently offered in USTA Northern.
