USTA Eastern 2020/2021 Tournament Alignment (NEW!)
Over the next two years (2020 and 2021), all 17 geographic USTA Sections will 'align' around a single tournament pathway and ranking system. The alignment will provide players with more play opportunities (unrestricted by section borders) and more player-friendly scheduling (limited draws and standardized schedules). The USTA will also introduce significantly improved web and app technology that will help players better track their rankings, ratings and progress. This will be a two-year transition. To learn more about competitive structure changes, click here. The following are the changes taking place in the USTA Eastern section beginning January 1, 2020.
