Request a Team Number/Player Registration Open
NEW!!! The 2018 18+ ADULT Fall M. League “Non-NTRP Pilot” is REPLACING the 18+ ADULT Fall M. League offered previously. This “Non-NTRP Pilot” is for the 18+ ADULT FALL M. League ONLY. This is a “Pilot” season. The decision to offer the 2018 18+ ADULT Fall “Non-NTRP Pilot” M. League was based on (1) a 5-year decline in Men’s’ participation numbers, (2) the 2017 CAPTAIN/PLAYER SURVEY Results and (3) the ADULT League Committee.
2018 Fall Winners continue to receive a Wild Card to the 2018 18+ ADULT Spring/Summer League Playoffs (QT) in July 2018. 2018 USTA Dallas 18+ ADULT Spring/Summer roster must have 50% of the winning Fall roster or at least 8 players from the Fall roster registered on TENNIS LINK by registration deadline to qualify for Wild Card.
2018 Fall Wild Card Winners must compile with the 2017 USTA Rules and Regulations, #2.03A (3) during the 2018 Spring/Summer league season to qualify for advancement to League Playoffs.
#2.03A (3) – A player MUST play 2 times during the local league to qualify to advance to championship play (i.e. Qualifying Tournament, City Championship, Sectionals). 1 Default may be counted towards their 2-local league matches during the regular season. For Nationals, a player must have completed 3 matches, no defaults to qualify
