Does your schedule make it difficult to play on a USTA League team? Are you looking for people to play with, but don't know where to go? Do you want to work on your singles game, without affecting your USTA rating? USTA’s Flex League may be for you.

Flex Leagues allows you to play when it’s convenient for you. You arrange a mutually agreeable match day, time and location with your opponent. The home player covers the court costs, if any.

Registration is completed online at www.ustaflex.com. Once registration is closed, a schedule will be generated. You will receive a list of opponents and suggested “play by” dates. Once the match is played, the scores are recorded online.

Additionally, all players registered for the USTA Flex League are entered into the USTA Flex League Sweepstakes where the grand prize is a trip for two to the U.S. Open.

Fall registration dates for the USTA Flex League run from June 15 through Sept. 20.
