ADULTS

USTA Adult 40 & Over League

EXTENDED DEADLINE to form a team!  Effective January 2020, the new 40 & Over league format will be 1 singles and 3 doubles.  This format change is aligned with the Championships by Nationals, Southern, and Georgia. Only 7 players are required to create an Adult 40 & Over team. At the 4.5+ level, only one + player (5.0) may play in a given match (but three + players may be rostered on Tennis Link).

Adult 40 & Over compete on local teams that may progress from Local to State to Sectional to National championship play. These men’s and women’s teams provide competitive play from 3.0 to 4.5+ NTRP skill levels. Players that do not have a current NTRP rating may self-rate in order to participate. For levels 3.0 – 4.5+ the team match consists of four individual matches: one singles position and three doubles positions. A non advancing 2.5 league is offered. For 2.5, the team match consists of three individual matches: one singles positions and two doubles positions. Both fall (September – November) and spring (January – April) seasons are played for local competition. Matches are held on Sunday afternoons at various tennis centers and clubs in the area. The number of matches is determined based on the chart below:
