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.
