Team Events Update
The Section is postponing the Level 4 July 29 -Aug 1 Team event to later this year due to ongoing court availability limitations and software delays. The new date is not confirmed yet.ADVERTISEMENT
We are working in collaboration with the Sections of Eastern, Middle States, and New England on the Level 2 Team event scheduled for September 2021. It is likely that all of the level 2 Team events will be moved to the December 2021 date block.
As sites and dates are confirmed the planning calendar will be updated.

Is my child ready for Junior Tournaments?
Players who are 10 years old or younger are not eligible to compete in Junior Tournaments until they have completed the Net Generation Play Tracker (coming soon) or they turn 11 years old.
If this is your child’s first experience with competitive match play, it is strongly recommended to start with at least one Junior Circuit event before entering a Junior Tournament. Junior Circuit events are open to all ages and introduce players to competitive match play in a fun, non-elimination short format. For more information on the Junior Circuit click here.
When you’re ready to play competitive tennis, USTA Junior Tournaments are a great way to get out on the court and test your game.
If you have questions regarding USTA Mid-Atlantic Junior Tournaments please email email@example.com.
