Dear Friends,

We hope you are having a good start to the new year.  As we are about to begin the new 2013 USTA League Season, we will strive as always to keep you as informed as possible on all things tennis in Memphis. 


With all the changes happening in 2013 and with all the leagues that occupy a majority of our year, getting important information to you as a player or captain is one of our primary goals.  This is done through our website, our monthly newsletters, Facebook, and Twitter.  So please take the time to frequently visit our website and follow us on social media so that you will not miss important announcements and information.

The updated 2013 MTA membership directories are available and will be distributed at the Captain's Meetings (above).  Please encourage your Spring USTA Captains to attend, as they will be responsible for picking up directories for their players.



  • Please bring a list (a count) of players for whom you will need a directory
  • 40+ ADULT captains -do not include the players in your count who are also playing on playing on a 18+ team (playing down).  
  • 55+ captains - do not include the players in your count who are also playing on a 40+ team (playing down).
  • If a player is playing their current level as well as playing "up" a level (ex. a 3.0 also playing 3.5), the captain of the player's true level (lower level) team will pick up the book for that player 


If you are NOT playing on an Adult USTA team (any age division), please contact us via email at to arrange to get your directory. Otherwise, please contact your captain to obtain your directory.


(Please forward this newsletter to your USTA friends who may not be on our mailing list yet.)

This time of year there a lot of people who may be new to Memphis or bumped to a new level that are looking to join a USTA team.  If you are looking to fill your rosters, be sure to visit the TEAM LINK page on our website and give some of these players a call.
