USTA League takes the fun and excitement of the game of tennis to a higher level by offering the “championship experience”. In 2016, more than 7,500 players experienced the thrill of participating at District and Sectional Championships. By the end of the Sectional Championships, 36 teams advanced to the National Championships in California, Arizona and Alabama. New England continues to place in the “top 4” out of 17 sections; 1 team placed second, 2 teams placed third and 5 teams placed fourth amongst their peers across the country!
We are proud that USTA League is and continues to be the USTA New England flagship program.
