<h1>Zone Team Championships</h1>

The USTA Zone Team Championships is a five day team competition emphasizing both singles, doubles and mixed doubles play against other section teams with match results counting for National and Midwest Section rankings. As part of the USTA's objective of creating an environment in which young players can develop their skills to the fullest, the "zonals" provide both national competition and learning opportunities.


Below is a review of the basic structure and exciting aspects of the developmental format. We hope this information will answer some of the questions and encourage you to apply to the USTA Zone Team Championships.


Event Goals

The goals of the USTA Boys’ and Girls’ Zone Team Championships are:

  • To introduce young players to national competition in such a way that competitive stress is minimized and competitive learning opportunities are maximized.
  • To provide the best possible competitive opportunity for maximizing each child’s physical and emotional development.



The USTA/Midwest Section will send coaches to the event. The coaches may coach players at specific times during matches and will supervise teams at official team functions. 


Assignment to Teams

The Midwest Boys' and Girls' Sectional Endorser will assign players to teams to obtain as uniform team strength as possible. The teams will be selected by using the most current Midwest Standing List in the age division being endorsed.


Selection of Players/Entry Deadline

To be considered for endorsement by the USTA/Midwest Section, each player must apply through the TennisLink Registration System (links to each team below). The USTA/Midwest Section will endorse the following:
