USTA/Midwest District TEAM CUPS

USTA Midwest District Team Cups

Each year, top junior players from the Northern Illinois District have the opportunity to compete as a member of the NITA team against other district teams from the USTA Midwest Section. The four teams are composed of players in the Boys 18's, Girls 18's, Boys/Girls 14's (co-ed) and Boys/Girls 12's (co-ed) divisions.  

This is one of the few opportunities USTA junior players have to compete in a team environment with coaching allowed by district hired coaches.  The format is similar to college tennis with both singles and doubles played.   The USTA Midwest District Team Cup tournaments are Midwest Level 2 events.

2017 Event Dates: June 16-18 for all District Team Cup Teams
Play will begin on June 16th.   June 15th is the travel and on-site registration day.
