USTA League Info

Registration has opened in Birmingham for the COMBO DOUBLES 18 & Over and the 40 & Over WOMEN'S leagues with the initial team registration deadline being June 7th. The maximum number of players per team is (14) fourteen. Players can be added to your TennisLink roster throughout the local league season but do note that the player must be added prior to playing in a match.


The format is three lines of doubles per league match playing a match tiebreak in lieu of a third set. Players can play on more than one level team and can play on a weekday, weeknight and/or Saturday league team! Play should begin early July with the weekday league finishing prior to the start of the softcourt/doubles only league.
The following league opportunities are available:
18 & Over Weekday (9:30 am)

We will also offer the invitational 9.5 level and all teams do have to register on TennisLInk. Each team is required to have a minimum of two 5.0 or higher rated players on the team. The deadline to have the initial six players registered for this invitational level is September 1st. My preference though is that you have the initial six players registered in our Birmingham league by June 7th.
