USTA Florida is encouraging Florida residents to get out and play tennis this May and June, as part of the full Phase 1 reopening of the state. While encouraging local play throughout communities, USTA Florida has made the decision to suspend all USTA Florida programs and products through June 30.
Alternative-format events such as Tiebreak Tournaments, Fast4, and One-on-One Doubles offer players a chance to play competitively in one-day and abbreviated tournaments rather than giving up an entire weekend.
Alternative formats include torunament styles such as:
One day tournaments that include seeds and draw sheets (main draw and consolation), but matches are best of three tiebreaks.
There are various types of adult tournaments for players of all types. Find out more below!
Adult/Senior Age Division Tournament Tennis offers men and women the opportunity to individually compete in sanctioned tennis tournaments in five year increments, for example; 30 through 90. Age division tournaments offer singles and doubles categories. Most guarantee players at least two matches in each division with a feed-in consolation.
NTRP (National Tennis Rating Program) tournaments offer players the ability to play tournaments at their appropriate NTRP rating level. Most USTA Florida tournaments offer all available NTRP levels from 2.5-5.0. These tournaments are grouped by level to provide the player with a competitive but comfortable opportunity to compete with others.
Includes the following divisions; father-son, father-daughter, mother-son, mother–daughter. Parent and child may enter if they are related; by blood, legal adoption, or current step relationship. A child may play with different parents in different tournaments or different divisions in a tournament. There is also a division with a minimum age restriction for parent.
The NTRP Nationals Championships are national adult tournaments that leverage the NTRP rating system as a way to create level-based competition at the 18 & over and 50 & over age groups. Each year, NTRP National Champions are crowned in men’s and women’s singles and doubles at the 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 levels in both 18 & over and 50 & over age groups, as well as at the 5.0 level in the 18 & over division.
