Love team play? USTA League is the country’s largest recreational tennis league with more than 300,000 players nationwide competing on teams while meeting new people and getting physically active. Match play is based on the NTRP rating system so you will play with and against players of similar abilities. Whether new to the game or a former player, there’s a spot for you! USTA Leagues also offer you and your teammates a chance to advance from local play to USTA National League Championships.
If you are interested in joining a league at Eastmoor please contact Pia Lisle (Eastmoor Tennis Board Member) with your NTRP level and she will assist you in getting in contact with a team. There is not guaranteed availability on teams due to limited roster space and court availability on given nights.
COVID-19 UPDATE ON LEAGUE TENNIS
The USTA has released a revised league plan for 2020 due to COVID-19. The priority for the season is to get 6-7 matches of local league play; district playoffs are highly unlikely.
First Season of League Play When it is appropriate to return to play, the USTA will start the first season of leagues as follows. These two leagues will not be cancelled unless the USTA runs out of time for running leagues during 2020. These leagues are as follows:
USTA Mixed 18 & Over (minimum roster deadline April 17th)
USTA Adult 18 & Over (minimum Roster Deadline now May 1st)
NOTE: While most Eastmoor league rosters are full for the USTA Adult 18 & Over, there is still opportunity for another 2.5 ladies team and 3.5 ladies team to be added. If you are interested in joining please reach out to tennis chair Pia Lisle or head pro Ken Tronco to get connected!
Second Season of League Play If the first season of leagues (listed above) are completed and there is still enough time to complete another league with 6-7 matches, the USTA will start the following leagues immediately upon conclusion of the first group of leagues:
CTA Twilight (Note: Format will be changed for this season to 1 singles, 3 doubles to allow opportunities for more players to participate)
CTA Adult 65 & Over
CTA Women’s Summer Daytime
Cancelled League Play These leagues typically fit between Adult 18 & Over and CTA Twilight. Instead of running these three leagues (which have age/skill level limitations), the USTA has decided to run Twilight since it provides all ages and ability levels the opportunity to participate.
USTA Adult 40 & Over
CTA Adult 18-39 /
CTA Women’s 2.5
Eastmoor will continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus and the tennis courts will be reopened when we are given guidance to do so.
