Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all USTA-sanctioned programs and events are suspended through May 31, 2020. For more information, visit our webpage which is updated with the most recent information.

 

Upon resumption of programming, junior and adult ranking lists will remain frozen through July 1. As facilities reopen and summer programming starts up, our focus is on ensuring player safety and promoting local play.

 

USTA Northern offers an array of adult, NTRP and senior tournaments, whether it’s a local tournament where you can compete with area players or represent Team USA in a senior international competition. Find upcoming events in the USTA Northern section.
 
Here’s a quick look at all the different ways that you can play USTA Northern adult tournaments:


 
Local Events


USTA-sanctioned tournaments are held throughout the country, which you can enter based on age (open, 35 and over, 40 and over, etc.) or ability (NTRP rating). ADVERTISEMENT Ranking points are awarded at these events and go toward your sectional or district ranking.

National Events



Category I, II & III Tournaments


The USTA also offers tournament play at the national level. You can compete in singles, doubles or family divisions, at all age levels, and on hard courts, clay courts, grass courts or indoor. These tournaments award national ranking points.
 
Category I tournaments are USTA National Championship “Gold Ball” events. The USTA holds four national championships annually in each adult age division (from age 30 to 90) - one each on clay, hard, grass and indoor surfaces. Singles, doubles and mixed doubles are all offered, as are play in family divisions.

USTA Northern hosts one Category I Tournament - the Men's 65 & Over Indoor National Championships at Life Time Athletic Eden Prairie each August.

 
Category II tournaments are the next level down from Category I National Championships. They are still considered premier national events but receive fewer ranking points and offer more divisions than Category I National Championships.
 
Category III tournaments offer alternative formats apart from the traditional best-of-three sets. What participants may encounter are lesser-time-commitment tournaments, non-elimination draws and/or modified scoring formats – all while maintaining the quality level of player for which USTA national events are known.

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.

NTRP Nationals

 

 

In 2018, the USTA launched a new national adult tournament that leverages the NTRP rating system as a way to create level-based competition at the 18 & over and 50 & over age groups. NTRP National Champions were 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. Learn more about NTRP Nationals.
