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.
