USTA Adult

Spring League

USTA League tennis is a great way to meet & play with people of your same skill level. Teams play 3 courts of doubles per match, plus 2 courts of singles depending on the league (see chart below). Leagues range from 2.5 to 9.0 skill levels.

Teams compete locally to progress from Local to State, Sectional, & National championship play! No player may register for a particular team in a league lower than their rating. For example, a player rated 3.5 cannot play on a 3.0 team, but a 2.5 rated player can play on a 3.0 team.

Durham Parks and Recreation organize and run USTA leagues in the Durham and Orange County area. 

Durham Parks and Recreation (DPR)/United States Tennis Association (USTA) provide recreational tennis programs for all players, regardless of skill.

Please note that all participants, including spectators, will be held to the standards listed in our code of conduct.

For more information, email Cathy Baldwin or call 919-560-4355, ext. 27238.  Please visit the DPR Google Drive for detailed information about the league.

NTRP Ratings Info

The league uses the NTRP rating system. Each player must have either a computer rating or must be self – rated.

  • If you’re not sure what your rating is, you can find it through Tennislink.

  • If you don’t have a rating, you can complete the ‘self – rate’ process found there.
