2012 NTRP Ratings
As we all know, the new NTRP ratings became available last month.  For your convenience we have attached the local ratings list here.  Enjoy!

Looking for a Team?

USTA Southern


MTA Team Link Page!

When new ratings come out each year, often times players find themselves bumped from their former team and in search of a new team.

That is why the MTA has created the Team Link page on our website.  Captains if you are in need of players, please remember to visit this page often to assist you with filling up your rosters.
