The Metro Corporate Tennis League, presented by Advantage Tennis Clubs is a joint initiative of the Metrotennis Community Tennis Association and USTA/Eastern-Metro. As the local, volunteer-led chapter of USTA Eastern, the USTA Metro Region is committed to promoting and developing the growth of tennis in New York City. Metrotennis CTA, incorporated in 2002, is a 501(c)4 not-for-profit organization, which provides USTA Adult Competitive Leagues, Corporate Tennis Leagues, and affordable beginner adult programs in the New York City metropolitan area.

Registration is now open for the Winter 2014 season. The season includes a minimum of six matches, each played for two hours on two courts. Tennis balls and refreshments are provided, and after every match, hors d’oeuvres wine and beer are served. The season concludes with an end-of-season party where all league participants enjoy a buffet dinner and open bar, tennis, dancing and other activities. The winners of all divisions advance to semifinals or finals for their league.

The matches will be held weekday evenings at three area clubs:

►West Side Tennis Club, located at 1 Tennis Place in Forest Hills, N.Y.
►Roosevelt Island Racquet Club, located at 281 Main Street in Roosevelt Island, N.Y.
►CityView Racquet Club, located at 43-34 32nd Place (between Skillman Avenue and Queens Boulevard), Penthouse in Long Island City, N.Y.
