League Seasons in th Northern Illinois District

There are four league seasons in Northern Illinois which are described below.

Progression to Higher Levels of Competition: Teams have the opportunity to advance annually to applicable district, state, sectional and national championships.  Championship progression for adult, mixed 18 and over and mixed 40 and over, and tri-level divisions begins in late July and finishes in November.  Championship progression for Combo and Mixed 55 concludes with the Midwest Section Championship which is held in early winter of the following year.

Who Forms Teams? Northern Illinois District teams are formed when a group of players, generaly led by a “captain”, get together and find a facility/club to host their home matches.  Teams can also be sponsored and promoted through a particular facility/club.  Teams must have access to home courts at an indoor facility/club for all seasons except the Spring/Summer season as that season may be played on outdoor courts.

How to get involved: If you are interested in becoming part of the USTA league program in your community, want to start a new team of players with similar skill levels, or have questions about Northern Illinois USTA League Tennis, our NITA District League Coordinator, Viki Congleton, viki@northernillinoistennis.com is more than happy to help you.
