Are you ready for 2020 Adult Leagues?

Here is the 2020 USTA Adult Leagues Schedule.  For specific information about leagues, format, minimum number of teams and players, etc., click here.  There is a fee for each league in which you participate.

To register for a USTA League: 

You must be a USTA member in order to play in a USTA league.  If you don't have a USTA membership or it needs to be renewed, proceed to the USTA website to purchase your membership first before returning back to this website and registering for the league.  Click here for USTA membership information.
  • If you already know your Team Number and you have your USTA membership number, registration is a 2-step process.  Step 1 - enter your information on the Abilene Tennis Association registration form by clicking here.  After you complete the form, you will be redirected to the USTA's website to complete Step 2 of the registration process including payment.
  • If you want to play but are not already on a team, email Melinda Roberson at adultcoord@abilenetennis.org or (325) 669-3340.  She will connect you with a team at your ability level.  To better understand your ability level, familiarize yourself with the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP).  The description of each skill level will help you best determine your own rating.  Once she provides you with the Team Number, complete the 2-step process as described above.
