USTA Leagues

League Seasons in the Northern Illinois District:

The Early Start/Fall League season begins in September and runs through December. Winter Leagues start in January and run through April. The final season each year is the Spring-Summer season, beginning in early May and ending prior to district and state playoffs in August.

Progression to Higher Levels of Competition: Teams have the opportunity to advance as a team to district, state, sectional and national playoffs which begin in August and finish in November annually. Along the way there are lots of opportunities for fun and great tennis, as well as meeting other tennis players from all over the country. 

WHO FORMS TEAMS? Northern Illinois District teams can be formed by individual captains get a group of players together and find a facility or club to play at, or teams may be sponsored and promoted through a particular club or facility. Teams must have access to home courts at an indoor facility for all seasons except the spring-summer season, when matches can all be played outside.
