It’s already March, which across Florida means sign-ups for USTA League Adult 40 & Over, 18 & Over, and in some regions Mixed 18 & Over or other league divisions.
Only in USTA League can your team win a local league and advance to USTA Florida League Sectionals and USTA League Nationals, many of which are contested at the new 100-court USTA National Campus in the Lake Nona neighborhood of Orlando.

National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) levels include entry-level 2.5 to 5.0 and 5.0+ leagues for advanced players. Players new to USTA Leagues can self-rate for an NTRP rating. Advanced players at the 5.5 NTRP level can now play in 18 & Over leagues at the 5.0+ level, which allows teams to have two 5.5 players on their roster. Players age 40 and over at the 5.0 level can play on 40 & Over 4.5+ teams that allow two 5.0 players on a team roster.
Already have a group of friends ready to join a league? Then become a USTA League captain and steer your team through local league play to sectionals or nationals play. USTA Leagues also include more social and flexible options in addition to traditional competitive leagues. For more info on social and flexible options click here, and to find out if they are offered in your area of Florida check your regional league schedule here.
Also as a USTA League player your USTA membership also counts toward growing tennis in your community. The not-for-profit USTA Florida Section puts 90 percent of membership dollars and its annual budget directly back into the Florida tennis community for programs such as USTA Leagues, Junior Team Tennis, building and renovating tennis courts, supporting school tennis, special-needs populations and more. As a USTA League player you also show your support for community tennis and grassroots programs in your area.
