USTA, UTR, and BTA Leagues are great ways to gain match experience.  Each organization provides its own unique benefit!  Below is a description of each organization and what they can offer you as the player (links to each organization also provided below):

USTA Tournaments are designed for players of all levels.  Beginner players will play L7 and L8 tournaments in their respective age groups, more advanced players will play L5 and L6 tournaments, while highly ranked players will play national level and L3-L4 sectional tournaments.  USTA tournaments are especially important for players seeking to achieve a sectional or national ranking.  USTA rankings are considered by college coaches during the recruiting process.

UTR Tournaments have been increasing in popularity very quickly.  Internationally, UTR tournaments have been around for some time and college coaches weigh UTR ratings heavily while recruiting players in the U.S. and abroad.  USTA tournaments count toward a players UTR rating as well as UTR tournaments.  UTR tournaments are interesting because they base their tournament draws on UTR Ratings rather than age or gender.  Tournaments may match up 40 year-olds with 15 year-olds and women with men etc.  For younger players who want to avoid the orange and red ball tournaments, UTR is the way to go! Please remember that college coaches the UTR system and that scores within matches are very important towards a players UTR rating (fight for every game!).
