USA League Tennis presented by Lincoln is the world’s largest recreational tennis league with 360,000 players throughout the country. Players participate on teams in a league format, which is administered by the United States Tennis Association through its 17 sectional associations. The league groups players by ability using six National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) levels, from 2.5 (entry level) to 5.0 (advanced). Players progress through a series of championships at the area and sectional levels culminating with the national championships. USA League Tennis is open to any USTA member age 19 and older. The league provides players with the opportunity to improve their skills, have fun, meet other players, travel throughout the country and compete in a USTA national championship.

Lincoln is the presenting sponsor and official vehicle of USA League Tennis. Penn Racquet Sports, the world’s leading manufacturer of tennis balls, is in its 15th year as the official ball of USA League Tennis. The Citizen Watch Company celebrates its seventh year as a USTA Corporate Champion and as sponsor of USA League Tennis.
