With more than 900,000 registrations each year, USTA League is the country’s largest adult recreational tennis league – and a great way to stay active, socialize, & improve your game. Plus, with players of all skill levels, there’s a place for you & your game. Age divisions for adult recreational tennis programs include 18 & over, 40 & over, 55 & over, 65 & over, and 70 and over.

Home Team
  • It’s the home team’s responsibility to provide match – ready courts. The home team has the ultimate decision on whether courts are safe to play on. If the courts are not playable, the home team captain must contact the visiting team captain 1 hour before match time.
  • The home team also provides the balls & makes sure restrooms are available. Each team must provide their own beverage.
Facilities
  • Any team using a public park as their home facility must pay court fees by the designated due date. If fees are not paid, the team will be removed from the standings & all matches deleted.
  • The league coordinator will reserve courts for any team using public parks. Club players will need to secure their own courts through their club.  Please report any club blackout dates to the coordinator.
Make – up Matches
  • Make – up matches are to be played by the 14th day after the original match date, if not sooner. Scores should be added no later than the 16th day. Remember to inform the league coordinator if your match is rained out & what the rescheduled date is.
  • Matches may be made up court – by – court (as individual lines).
