USTA Tri-Level is Back This Fall

Tri-Level, USTA’s newest league, is back for its second season this Fall.  This socially competitive league is a great way to enjoy the camaraderie of friends in the ultimate team experience.  In Tri-Level a match consists of three courts of doubles of three different levels.  For example,  in the adult 40 & Over flight, a match will consist of a 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0 court.

Are you looking for a way to play on a team with your friends? Or did you have trouble getting enough people together for a USTA team last Spring?  Tri- Level may be just the league for you!

In our area, the league will be coordinated out of the CCTA by Jonathan Watkins.

For a team registration form, please click HERE.

For more information on the rules and guidelines, please click HERE.

If you have questions, please contact Jonathon at jwatkinsx47@gmail.com.
