Leagues: How to Get Started

In order to play USTA League Tennis you have to be on a USTA League Team.  And in order to be on a Wash Park Tennis Club League team, you must be a WPTC Member.

Here's how to get started...

Determine Your NTRP rating

To play on a USTA League Team you'll need to know or establish your NTRP rating.  If you don't know your rating, you can "self-rate" based on the NTRP Characteristics described on the USTA website.

Learn more about NTRP Ratings

Join USTA

Once you join, you will receive your permanent USTA member number. You will need your USTA number to signup for league teams and USTA sanctioned tournaments.

You can either join USTA online or call 1-800-990-USTA to join.

Join Wash Park Tennis Club (WPTC)

A WPTC annual individual membership (Jan 1 - Dec 31) is required if you plan on playing for a WPTC team for USTA leagues.  This is a hard and fast rule. No exceptions are allowed. And all players must renew annually at the beginning of the year.  Become a WPTC Member Today

Find a Team -or- Captain Your Own Team

Once you're a member, you can play on one of our teams, or even captain your own team!  We can either help you find a team or help you find players for your team.

Just use our FIND A TEAM page and our Leagues Director will get you all set up!

Get a Team Number and Courts

In order for individual players to register for a team in the TennisLink system, everyone will need to provide a team number.  Additionally, all teams need courts to play "home" matches.

One of the benefits of playing on a WPTC League team is that we do all the work to get you both a USTA Team Number and secure court permits for all of your "home" matches. 

This is no small task, and there are costs involved.  So, every team pays the WPTC League Team Fee.  Typically the team captain will pay the team league fee and then divide the team fee among their team members. Captains are responsible for getting reimbursed from their team.

The WPTC Team League fee varies depending on the league you are joining and the number lines played for that league.

$170 for leagues that plays 3 lines*
$200 for leagues that plays 5 lines*

* NTRP teams playing 2.5 or 5.0+ pay $200
