2011 Year in Review: USTA Leagues

USTA League is the country's largest recreational tennis league, helping more than 330,000 players nationwide get on the court, have a good time, and step up their game. It launched over 30 years ago with the goal of organizing and promoting more opportunities to play for adults of all ages.
 
It was another successful year for USTA Leagues in 2011 and organizing and scheduling for captains and players alike became easier as well with the launch of the USTA Mobile App for the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. With the new app, team members now have access to their leagues and tournament information while on the go, including scores, NTRP ratings, statistics, team standings, match schedules, tournament draws, directions to matches and more.
 
The success of USTA League is built on the concept of offering an unparalleled blend of competition and camaraderie, as well as a chance to compete for a national title. This fall, the USTA League National Championships were contested in Tucson, Ariz., Indian Wells, Calif., and Rancho Mirage, Calif. and showcased competitors of a variety of ages and ability levels from 2.5 to 5.0, as well as 2.5 to 10.0 mixed doubles, who competed for national titles.
 
It was also announced in 2011 that the USTA League structure will be changing its structure and format for the 2013 National Championships, which will affect many league seasons in 2012  With the new structure, the USTA League National Championships will fall under just two divisions: Adult and Mixed. The Adult Division will be broken down into 18 and over, 40 and over, and 55 and over with a potential 65 or 70 and over league type considered for the future. Sections are encouraged to add a 65 or 70 and over league type locally. The Mixed Division will be 18 & over, which is the same as the previous format, with the potential to add a 40 and over league type in the future. Another important change will be the addition of singles play for the 40 and over group.
