USTA Mixed Doubles
Join in one of the most FUN & social leagues that the USTA offers — MIXED DOUBLES. Teams play 3 courts of doubles, ranging from 2.5 to 9.0 skill levels. Teams form with a minimum of 6 players and 15 maximum. Teams may advance to State, Sectionals, & Nationals.
The combined levels of each doubles pair cannot exceed the team level. No individual pairing can be separated by more than 1.0 in NTRP level. For example, a 3.5 & a 4.5 can play the 8.0 level, but a 5.0 & a 3.0 cannot because the rating difference is too great.
NTRP Ratings Info
This 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.
All players participating in USTA League are required to be USTA members. Click here to create a USTA account. League fees for all USTA League play is $22 + $3 Tennislink fee for a total of $25.
