To participate in a USTA league, you must become a USTA member and get a rating. If you’re unsure what your rating is, a good way to find out is to schedule a lesson with one of our pros. They will be able to assess your level and connect you with one of our league captains. To learn more about USTA leagues, visit the USTA website.
