Hello Southern Tennis Fans!
Welcome to the online home of USTA Southern! Our organization covers tennis enthusiasts across nine states in the South: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
USTA League is the country's largest recreational tennis league, helping more than 800,000 participants nationwide get on the court, have a good time, and step up their game.
The league is organized as competitive team match play. Teams are made up of a minimum of five to eight players depending upon division.
Teams and matches are set up according to NTRP ratings, so your teammates and opponents will be at your skill level. The competition is exciting, the atmosphere is social, and since players compete on teams, you have a built-in cheering section.
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 178,000+ 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.
