What is a Mixed League?

Mixed League teams are USTA teams made up of both male and female players with various rankings. There are three doubles matches per tie. The ranking of the two players (one male, one female) for each doubles team must not add up to higher than the team ranking. For example, a 6.0 team could play a 3.0 and a 2.5 player, whose total combined rank is 5.5. Mixed league match outcomes do not affect your USTA ranking. It's a fun way to meet new people and a chance to team up with players with potentially very different game styles.

Do you have an FAQ about being on a USTA Team?
GLTF has a webpage dedicated to general league info and what to expect when you join a team. We answer many questions including how many matches you can expect to have, how often and where you might play, how much it all costs, scheduling, etc.

When do we play?
Please refer to the USTA Team FAQ's for the season schedule.

When will ties be scheduled for the season?
Teams have to be registered about a month prior to the season.  Once that happens, USTA and your captains will work on figuring out the schedule for the entire season as quickly as possible. You should know the official schedule of dates, times, and locations around 2 weeks prior to the season.

How do I sign up?
