    Founded in 1881, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) is the national governing body for the sport of tennis in this country. In addition to owning the US Open and selecting members of the U.S. Davis Cup, Fed Cup, Olympic and Paralympic teams, the USTA administers a variety of programs nationwide for players of all ages and ability levels.

    A not-for-profit organization, the association is divided into 17 sections, of which the USTA Southern is the largest. The 175,000 USTA members living in our nine states account for approximately 25% of the total USTA membership.

    USTA Southern's daily operations are carried out by a professional staff based in Norcross, Ga., but policy is formed and much of the organization's work is executed via a Board of Directors and committee structure of over 200 volunteers.

    This year marks the 34th anniversary of the USTA League. Established in 1980, it has grown from 13,000 participants in a few parts of the country in its first year, to over 331,000 players signing up for 808,000 leagues across the nation today, making it the world’s largest recreational tennis program. There are more than 102,000 players in USTA Southern playing on an average of nearly three teams per year.

    The USTA League was established to provide adult recreational tennis players throughout the country with the opportunity to compete against players of similar ability levels. Players participate on teams in a league format, which is administered by the USTA through its 17 Sections. The league groups players by using six NTRP levels, ranging from 2.5 (entry) to 5.0 (advanced). USTA League is open to any USTA member 18 years of age or older. It features 18 & Over, 40 & Over, 55 & Over, 65 & Over and Mixed Doubles divisions.
