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.
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.
