USTA Spring League

2023 Spring League Information

USTA Spring League enables you to play team competition against players of similar skill levels. Most spring leagues consist of singles and doubles play. Leagues range from 2.5 to 5.0 NTRP levels. Your play during the spring season determines your NTRP rating for the following year.

Teams compete locally to progress to state, sectional, and national championships. Players may register for teams at their NTRP level or one level higher. For instance, a player ranked 3.0 may play on a 3.5 team, but may not play on a 2.5 team.

Please note that players may only play on one team per NTRP and age level. For instance, an 18 & Over 2.5 woman may play on a 2.5 weekday or weekend team, but not both. She may additionally play on a 40 & Over 2.5 team if she is old enough.
