League Teams

Joining a USTA team is one of the easiest ways to get involved with tennis as a GLTF member. There are numerous types of leagues, and each brings something unique to the game of tennis:
  • Adult League is for players of the same gender at similar ranking
  • Mixed League is for similarly skilled players of the opposite gender
  • Combo League is for players of the same gender but of various rankings
  • Adult 40+/55+ and Mixed 40+/55+ are additional leagues and new to 2013!

You can learn general information about what you can expect by playing on a USTA League team by checking out our Team FAQ page.

How to Join Our Teams

  1. Join the USTA. To join any team, you have to be a member of the USTA. There's an annual fee to join USTA.
    When you join, they will ask you to self-rate. Learn more about ratings here.
  2. Join the GLTF. You cannot play on a GLTF USTA team without being a member. There is an annual GLTF membership fee. 
  3. Pick a team.  How do you do that? The best place to start is usually by looking on the USTA's website at the official GLTF Organization page, which lists all the GLTF teams for the existing (or upcoming) season. It also describes where each is located and ranking. Once you find one you think might be a good fit, there is a link that allows you to send the captain an email -- or if you have already contacted the captain, there is a link to register for the team. Of course you can register without contacting the captain, but the captain may already have a fully planned roster.  There is a registration fee to join a USTA team in addition to the annual memberships of both organizations.  Each respective team captain will explain how the payment for practices and league matches will be handled for the team you join.

If you need help deciding which team is right for you, you can always send an email to our USTA Coordinator or our Women's Director. If you have any trouble navigating either of the USTA or GLTF registration pages or the team registration page, please contact our Webmaster.
