USTA MS Update

USTA Middle States (USTA MS) General Statement on Programming

In recent months, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and West Virginia have all released information and announcements about slowing the spread of COVID-19. This comes with new policies on out-of-state travel, mask mandates, restrictions on gatherings, and more. 


As state mandates and protocols are changing frequently, we will continue to keep this page updated with as relevant information as possible. 


During any pauses or adjustments in programming, USTA Middle States will continue to monitor state announcements and news on a daily basis. USTA Middle States will also work closely with facility operators and program organizers to determine the best way to proceed with programming and local USTA tennis play.



As allowed, USTA Middle States will continue to offer tennis programming throughout the section, with the expectation that all players will respect and follow the rules set both in their local areas, and in any area of which they will be participating. This means players traveling to play at a USTA-sanctioned event must be up-to-date with — and act in accordance with — all guidelines, mandates, or rules put in place by the state or municipality to which they are traveling. 


As it has over the last 22 months, the USTA Middle States team of staff and volunteers will continue to explore tennis programming options that provide opportunities to play and participate in our game, while keeping player and community safety at the highest level of importance.


USTA Middle States will update this page frequently should there be programming updates or local USTA-related changes. Questions or concerns can be sent to communications@ms.usta.comA locally-based FAQ page about programming that is currently running can be found here. Up-to-date information on state protocols can be found at the following sites: Delaware | New Jersey | Pennsylvania | West Virginia.
