Flex League Registration

Flex league registration closes May 4th and the season will run May 9th to July 27th. Here are some reasons to play Flex:

1. Play matches on your schedule.

2. Flex gives you the chance to get practice before going to state or just to work on your game with little pressure.

3. Flex allows you to play at the level where you are most competitive. So if you were promoted to a new USTA level but are better suited to a lower level, you can register for the level where you feel you fit best even if it is lower than your published USTA level.

If you have questions contact Kevin Theos at theos@sta.usta.com.
