About USTA Leagues


Adult League Tennis

USTA League is the country’s largest recreational tennis league. Raleigh has one of the most active leagues in the US. Whether you are just starting out or returning to tennis after a break, there is a place for you. Age divisions start at age 18 and extend through 70 and older.


Play is based on the USTA’s NTRP rating system which enables you to play with players of similar skill level. If you’re new to the Raleigh area or new to tennis, we can help. Feel free to contact us! Learn more about what to expect from USTA League tennis here.

  • Each team should provide their own beverages.


  • Any team using Raleigh city courts as their home team will pay court fees directly to Raleigh Parks and Recreation for their home matches. Courts are billed at $10 per court per match. Invoices are sent to the team captains who may in turn collect fees from their team members.

  • The league coordinator will reserve courts for any team using Raleigh city courts. Club players will secure courts through their respective clubs.

NTRP Ratings:

  • Adult USTA teams use NTRP ratings to determine a player’s level.
