The Perfect Opportunity to Play Tennis this Summer & Fall
Healthy. Safe. Physical.
If you haven't played tennis, now is the time to try.
Now more than ever, it's so important to stay active and healthy. Enter, tennis.
Whether it’s your first time on court or you’ve played for years, few sports deliver the wide variety of benefits that tennis does. Maybe the best part? Tennis lets you keep your social distance without being socially distant. Tennis is the ultimate return game — and now is the best time to get out and play.
There are plenty of opportunities to play in your area this summer and fall, so it's time for you to get involved. Fill out this simple form (also embedded below) to have a USTA Middle States representative reach out to you.
USTA League - USTA League Tennis is organized as competitive team match play. Teams are made up of a minimum of five to eight players, depending on division. Teams are set up according to NTRP ratings, so your teammates and opponents will be at your skill level. The competition is exciting, the atmosphere is social and since players compete on teams, you have a built-in cheering section. Overall, more than 300,000 players compete in USTA League, each year.
Adult Tournaments - There are an array of adult and senior tournaments offered through the USTA. Whether it’s a local tournament in which you compete with area players, or a national event in which you represent Team USA, there is an event for you.
