San Jose Swim & Racquet club members enjoy playing in a variety of USTA Northern California programs, including Adult Leagues, Flex Leagues, and Junior Team Tennis.
We are proud to support our members’ active participation in USTA Adult leagues and Junior Team Tennis. In 2012, San Jose fielded 20 different teams throughout the year. In 2011, our Adult Women’s 3.0 team made it all the way to Nationals!
Adult Tennis Leagues
USTA Leagues, the country’s largest recreational tennis league, has more than 330,000 players nationwide competing in match play, meeting new people and enjoying the camaraderie of teammates. In Norcal we have over 30,000 players in one of the ten different leagues that USTA Norcal offers: Flex League; Adult 18+, 40+, 55+, 65+, and 70+; Mixed 18+, 40+, and 55+; and Norcal Combo League. There is something for every age group. Play is based on the NTRP rating system so you will play with and against players of similar ability. If you are new to the game or a former player, there’s a spot for you. USTA Leagues also offer you and your teammates a chance to advance from local play to USTA League National Championship events.
To play on one of our club teams, you must be a member of SJSRC, a member of the USTA, and then discuss joining the team with the captain. There is a fee that you pay to the USTA when you join a team. If you have never played in USTA Leagues, or haven’t played for a long time, you will need to “self-rate” when you join a team. Check with one of our tennis professionals to see what your target rating should be before you start.
If you have questions about USTA programs at the club, contact Tennis Director Reno Davenport, firstname.lastname@example.org.

This might not seem like much of a range, but the difference even 1/8″ makes is surprising. Prolonged use of too large or especially too small […]
