Register Now for Fall 2019
Step up your game by joining our USTA program and be part of the country’s largest competitive league. The program is structured based on the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) to ensure that you play with similar level players.
Although the majority of players join a team, you can join a practice without committing to playing for a team. Teams have the opportunity to advance and play in district, sectional and national championships.

What are the USTA costs for being on a team?
In order to play on a USTA team, you need to become a member of the USTA. You can do this online at http://www.usta.com. An adult individual membership is $44/year and a family membership is $72/year. The USTA fee to register for a team is $22 per team.
If I miss a practice, can I do a “make-up”?
There is no “credit” given for a missed practice and we cannot guarantee “make-ups”. If you miss a practice, we will do our best to fit you in an open spot in one of the other practices at your NTRP level. If you cannot make it to practice, please let your team captain know as soon as possible.
What if there is inclement weather?
INTENSITY may officially cancel a practice due to inclement weather. If that occurs, INTENSITY will add an additional clinic on to the end of the session as a make-up.
Can I practice above my NTRP level?
The USTA local league limits the number of players on each team that are below the team NTRP level to FOUR below level players. Given the limited allowable spaces, you must obtain approval of the INTENSITY USTA Head Pro and that team captain before registering or a practice or a team that is above your level. If you are approved for practice that is above your NTRP level, you must also roster and make yourself available for matches on the team that is at your level until the time that USTA bumps your rating up.
Registration: Spaces are limited and INTENSITY reserves the right to not accept a registration. INTENSITY makes every effort to ensure that the programs run to schedule, but reserves the right to reschedule in the event of insufficient sign-ups or events beyond the club’s control. For USTA adult practices, a $200 deposit is required at the time of registration in order to hold and guarantee your spot in the practice. If INTENSITY reschedules or cancels the session, the deposit will be refunded.
Liability Waiver: Due to the nature of the sport, injuries can occur. Registrant acknowledges the risks and waives INTENSITY of any liability for such.
Injuries: A doctor’s note is required in any case where make-ups are deemed an appropriate remedy for missed classes or in the case of a prolonged injury, where a house credit may be issued for future use in a similar future program. Refunds are NOT offered and registrant agrees to make payment in full for all registered programs. Registrant agrees to pay INTENSITY reasonable attorney’s fees and costs in connection with collection of any amounts owed.
Cancellation/Refund Policy: Registrations for the USTA team and non-team practices may be cancelled up to ONE WEEK prior to the start of the season for a refund. After that time, you are committed to the team practices and installment payments for the balance of the session.
Video / Live Streaming: The club uses video/live streaming technology for informational use as a teaching tool during lessons, clinics and matches. Registrant confirms that they are aware of this and gives permission for its use.
