Tennis Create Well-being
Tennis unlocks many benefits for you physically, socially, and emotionally. With a racquet in your hand, you can gain more self-confidence, while reducing stress. Read how tennis in the Mid-Atlantic creates well-being for all players. The Section is having a special “mental health weekend,” for youth tennis players October 2 - 3, 2021 to bring attention to this important subject and encourage players and their families to discuss and take time for mental well-being as part of their tennis training, competition, and overall health.ADVERTISEMENT
The Mid-Atlantic Section is proud to host a Level 5 Doubles Only segment of the MATT STEVENSON Tournament Series October 2-3 focused on the importance of mental health
The Matt Stevenson Doubles Tournament is one of only two events running in the section October 2 -3 2021, with the other event being a Level 7 hosted by David LeMair Tennis.
Players are encouraged to either play one of the two events offered, or choose to take a quiet weekend and reflect on the importance of mental well-being.
Updates Continued: Mid-Atlantic Events
Team Events Update
The Section postponed the summer team events to later this year due to ongoing court availability limitations and software delays. The new date is not confirmed yet.
We are working in collaboration with the Sections of Eastern, Middle States, and New England on the Level 2 Team event. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
