USTA Adult Spring League

Lake Norman Tennis Association

USTA Adult Spring League

USTA League tennis is a great way to meet & play with people of your same skill level. Teams play 3 courts of doubles per match, plus 2 courts of singles depending on the league (see chart below). Leagues range from 2.5 to 9.0 skill levels.

Teams compete locally to progress from Local to State, Sectional, & National championship play! No player may register for a particular team in a league lower than their rating. For example, a player rated 3.5 cannot play on a 3.0 team, but a 2.5 rated player can play on a 3.0 team.

NTRP Ratings Info

The league uses the NTRP rating system. Each player must have either a computer rating or must 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 complete the ‘self – rate’ process found there.
Age Groups Offered

A player may play in a particular age group, as long as he / she turns the minimum age designation during the calendar year of registration.

  • 18 & Over
  • 40 & Over
  • 55 & Over
  • 65 & Over

*All players must be 18 years or older to play in the Adult leagues.
