USTA Middle States League Tennis Update
USTA League Update: USTA Middle States
August 5, 2020
Due to the uncertainty and ever-evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with player and community health as its top priority, USTA Middle States has made the difficult decision to cancel all USTA League Tennis District and Section Championships for the 2020 seasons. This decision was made collaboratively by the USTA Middle States League Committee and the USTA Middle States Competition Department. It was done with guidance and suggestions from many state and local authorities.
An update on the 2021 USTA League season:
As tennis players continue to make their way back to the courts, USTA Middle States is beginning to kick off the official 2021 league season throughout the six districts.
These playing opportunities will vary by district, but will include advancement and more traditional leagues.
Based on a variety of increased costs from an administrative side, an additional $3 fee will be added to each player’s league registration cost for the 2021 fall, winter and spring leagues. This is the first time since 2017 that the registration fee has been increased.
Players who received a credit to their USTA member account from a 2020 league that did not take place will not have to pay the $3 additional fee. Credits will be made available for use by August 31, 2020.
As a benefit to adult members, USTA is offering a 50 percent discount for players who had active adult or senior USTA memberships between mid-March and mid-June. The offer is good on only one-year adult and one-year senior memberships who had active accounts during that time period, and the offer will be available to anyone that renews from now until next March. For questions about membership, email email@example.com.
Meanwhile, Middle States is continuing to offer its free captain registration promotion, which allows captains one free registration per team. Additional details on how to receive this promotion will be communicated by each district’s area league coordinator.
Middle States will begin to promote fall and winter league play in the coming weeks. In the meantime, interested players can always reach out to their area league coordinator, or click here to have someone reach out to them about opportunities in their area. In addition, players can always email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or needs.
An update on refunds:
The deadline to request a refund for your 2020 USTA Middle States League has passed. Middle States received more than 900 refund requests and the team is working diligently to process these requests. For those who have requested a refund, please allow 3-4 weeks to receive your refund check.
Meanwhile, USTA Middle States is working with the national office to begin the credit process of approximately 5,000 players. This will take a few weeks to place a credit on those players' USTA accounts. Once complete, you will see the credit when you log on to usta.com, go to your Welcome Page, and in the top right hand corner click on Manage Accounts, which has a tab for Credits. The expiration date to use your credit is August 1, 2021. We expect credits to appear in player accounts by the end of August 2020.
