The Metro USTA Leagues have started up again in the fall with some changes. The 40 & Over Leagues were moved from the winter in February to the fall starting in September, so we did not have such a long break after the summer. The 40 & Over Women’s and Men’s seasons are in full swing.

The Mixed-Doubles League will be starting up in the fall/winter. First up is the Manhattan Season, starting in November with Levels at 6.0, 7.0, 8.0, 9.0 and 10.0. (Mixed-Doubles adds up the two players’ ratings: two 3.5 players would play together at 7.0. Ratings cannot differentiate by more than 1.0. A 4.0 and 3.0 can play 7.0 as well).

The Queens and Brooklyn Seasons will follow in January.

If you need help being placed on a team, please contact Steven Bricker at sbricker@metrotennis.com. If know, please provide your NTRP rating.
