Do you want to work on your singles game, without affecting your USTA rating? Does your schedule make it difficult to play on a USTA League team? USTA’s Flex League may be for you.

Flex Leagues allow you to play when it’s convenient for you. You arrange a mutually agreeable match day, time and location with your opponent. Court costs, if any, are split.

Registration is completed online at www.ustaflex.com. Once registration is closed, a schedule will be generated. You will receive a list of opponents and suggested “play by” dates. Once the match is played, the scores are recorded online.
We have leagues in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, and Staten Island has now joined in on the fun. Leagues are currently open at the 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 Levels for men and women. You can find the Staten Island League by searching “NYC-Staten Island” at www.ustaflex.com.

All players registered for the USTA Flex League are entered into the USTA Flex League Sweepstakes, where the grand prize is a trip for two to the U.S. Open.

Fall registration dates for the USTA Flex League run from June 15 through Sept. 20.
