What are team events?
You register as an individual, then will be matched with a team. The best part is, that you and your teammates are in it together and will be cheering each other on along the way. For more information on the Mid-Atlantic Team Event programs, please review these FAQs.
USTA Mid-Atlantic expects everyone to commit to a safe, inclusive, and FUN environment on and off the tennis court when they are participating in Mid-Atlantic sanctioned events. To foster good sportsmanship and continue to create community, character, and well-being, we are launching the ACES Pledge for all players, parents, spectators, coaches, and providers to take.

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.
