Structure and Rankings
A new, simplified USTA Junior Tournaments structure took effect in January 2021! After extensive research, including feedback from our players, we developed these standardized systems to provide greater consistency and more opportunities for our players, parents, coaches, tournament directors and officials.

Below are some highlights and resources for the new structure that is now in place. WATCH THE VIDEO
You can now find and register for events right here on usta.com. USTA Junior Tournaments are no longer based in TennisLink.
The new structure utilizes seven levels of events, ranging from Level 7 (Intermediate) to Level 1 (National Championships) and a universal ranking system that distributes points consistently across the country. VIEW THE 2021 RANKINGS AND STANDINGS
This nationwide system provides consistent tournament levels and standardized tournament operations for all events—regardless of location—replacing a system that was greatly dependent upon the region.
The new system allows players to more easily compete across sections, as the levels are now standardized with an increased number of open events, providing even more playing opportunities for junior players.
In addition, there are on-ranking events available, such as the USTA Junior Circuit events, which focus on age-appropriate competition, development, and fun.
