Leagues: How to Get Started

In order to play USTA League Tennis you have to be on a USTA League Team.  

WPTC has been Looking for a team or want to form your own? Use our FIND A TEAM form and our League Coordinators will assist you. But first, make sure that you have joined both the USTA and WTPC:

  • Join the USTA
    Once you join, you will receive your permanent USTA member number. You will need this number to signup for league teams. Join USTA online or call 1-800-990-USTA.
    You will need to know your NTRP rating to register. If you do not know your rating you can rate yourself based on NTRP Characteristics per the USTA website when you register for a membership, or contact Jason Rogers at CTA at

    • $170 for leagues that plays 3 lines
    • $200 for leagues that plays 5 lines

Playing on More Than One Team

Most of us tennis "junkies" want to play as much tennis as possible, so we look to join multiple teams.  It's totally fine and acceptable to play on multiple teams, however for any given league (listed above), a player may only register to play on one team in that league. So if you want to play on more than one team, each team has to be in a different league.


You CAN play simultaneously for 2 different teams in 2 different leagues.

  • Team A - USTA Adult 18 & Over
  • Team B - USTA Mixed 18 & Over

You CANNOT play simultaneously for 2 different NTRP Rating teams in the same league.

  • Team A - USTA Adult 18 & Over - 3.0
  • Team B - USTA Adult 18 & Over - 3.5

How Far Can A League Team Advance? 

How far a winning team can advance is based on the host organization of that league, which is typically in the name or title of the league. Most leagues start with either USTA, ITA or CTA in the name. 

  • Winning teams in leagues with USTA in the name, can advance as far as the National Championships facilitated by the United States Tennis Association. 

  • Winning teams in leagues with ITA in the name can advance as far as Sectional Championships.

  • Winning teams in leagues with CTA in the name can advance as far as District Championships. 
See Colorado USTA for more information.
