The Tri-Level League, which is played on three doubles courts—one at the 3.5 Level, one at the 4.0 Level and one at the 4.5 Level—wrapped up in October and November. The winning men’s team was captained by Gabe Moreira & Mitch Low. The winning women’s team was captained by Karen Levine. Both teams will be competing at the Sectional Playoff set for the weekend of Jan. 15 in Westchester, N.Y. Good luck to both teams!

The Mixed-Doubles League is now underway at the 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 & 9.0 Levels. This League is run based on combined ratings. The Mixed-Doubles League began mid-December and runs through the end of April with the regional playoffs set for the beginning of May. Players can be added to rosters until Jan. 15.

Jamie Stickney is now the coordinator of the Tri-Level and Mixed-Doubles Leagues, and can be reached at

Organizing for the upcoming Men’s and Women’s Seasons for the 18 & Over League, the 40 & Over League, and the 55 & Over League will begin in February. If there are any new captains, please let me know before Tuesday, March 1 when I begin scheduling. These leagues will run from May to August. Any players looking for teams should contact me after March 1 when I will know which teams are looking for players.

The 18 & Over League has teams at the 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 & 5.0+ Levels. The 5.0+ League is permitted to have two 5.5 players on the team.

The 40 & Over League has teams at the 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 & 4.5+ Levels. The 4.5+ League is permitted to have three 5.0 players on their team, with just two playing in each match. The 55 & Over League consists of three courts of doubles at the combined levels of 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 & 9.0.

Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy New Year and looking forward to USTA League Tennis in 2016!
