2010 2_5 Mixed finalists - web

Before a player can register for a team, they should keep the following points in mind:

•  The player must be a USTA member.

•  The player’s USTA membership must be valid through the end of the team’s local league season

•  The player must have the appropriate team number for the team they wish to register for. If the player does not have a team number, they must contact their captain for the number.

•  The player’s NTRP rating must be less than or equal to the NTRP level specified for the team they are registering for. If the player does not have a rating, then the player must go through the online self-rating process as they register for the team.

SELF-RATING GUIDELINES

•  You must declare a NTRP rating when you sign up for a team. If you do not already have a NTRP rating, you will need to complete the online self-rating process.

•  You will be asked a series of questions used to determine your rating. The questionnaire must be filled out completely as you will not be able to hit the "back" button. Once the form is completed, the player will be given a rating immediately.

•  If the player does not agree with the rating, they can appeal it right away online. To appeal the rating, the player needs to click on the "APPEAL" button at the bottom of the page. The next screen will prompt the player to fill out the appeal form and state why they do not agree with the computer generated rating.

•  If the player does submit an appeal, the computer registration system will not allow the player to register for the team until the player receives a response to the appeal. In this case, no fee will be charged since the player is not registered.

•  After the player has received a response, they will need to go to the USTA web site at http://national.usta.com to begin the registration process again.

There's a USTA League for You - Join the Team!

You love tennis. However, you don't always enjoy the solitude that surrounds the game. You like being around other people and thrive in playing in a team atmosphere. Don't think this is possible in tennis? Think again.
 
USTA League is the country's largest recreational tennis league, providing organized, structured team matches for men and women of all ability levels. Levels are based on the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) and range from beginner (2.5) to advanced (5.0). Let us help you determine your appropriate NTRP level.
 
All teams are set up according to player's NTRP rating. Therefore, players are assured of facing off against someone of comparable ability. This allows for a highly competitive and fun tennis environment.
 
USTA League features local, area and sectional championships culminating in a national championship. The following is a list of requirements for participants.
