USTA 70 & Over Doubles League

Lake Norman Tennis Association

Fall 70 & Over League

The USTA 70 & Over League is an additional playing option for those tennis enthusiasts who are 70 – years ‘young’ & older!

Teams play 3 lines of doubles each match. This coed league features a unique format:

  • 1 court of Women’s Doubles
  • 1 court of Men’s Doubles
  • 1 court of Mixed Doubles

Men and Women combine their NTRP rating to play on 6.0, 7.0, & 8.0 teams.

Teams compete locally to progress from Local to State Championship play.

NTRP Raings Info

USTA uses the NTRP rating system. Each player must have either a computer rating or be self – rated.

  • If you’re not sure what your rating is, you can find it through Tennislink.
  • If you don’t have a rating, you can go through the ‘self – rate’ process found there.
