Introduction

USTA Adult Team Tennis is the “Play” component of the USTA Tennis Program Pathway for adult players who are age 19 years or older. It is designed for players who are ready to focus more on match play while continuing to work on skill development, or those players with basic skills seeking an opportunity to compete.

USTA Adult Team Tennis provides organized match play and team practices that emphasize fun and the social benefits of tennis. Eventually, players may advance to more competitive play on teams in USTA League Tennis or in USTA Tournament Tennis.

The general guidelines for USTA Team Tennis allow players to be part of a team, to play tennis for health and fitness benefits, and to learn to play the sport with others of similar skill and interest. The flexibility of formats listed below, allows coaches or directors of tennis to tailor the program to their local situation.

What is USTA Adult Team Tennis?

USTA Adult Team Tennis is a group consisting of at least six players that participates in organized match play and practices over a four to eight week season. The balance between match play and practice time is decided between the coach and players.

Players who learned basic tennis skills through a clinic or other entry-level programs have the opportunity to test their skills in match play with USTA Adult Team Tennis. Normally, the emphasis is on playing doubles, which maximizes court usage, promotes team play, and encourages social interaction between participants.

USTA Adult Team Tennis is designed to promote organized play at your facility. However, as players improve and become eager to meet new opponents, you may arrange match play with teams from nearby facilities.

The competition should be low-key, with a greater emphasis place on fun, playing-skill development, and social interaction among participants. The goal is to convert each participant into a “frequent tennis player,” which is someone who plays 21 times or more a year.
