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. The match day, time and location is mutually decided with you and your opponent. Court costs, if any, are split.

Registration is now open online at www.ustaflex.com (search for NYC–Staten Island). Leagues at the 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 Levels for men and women.

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