USTA Southern Combo Doubles League

Summer/ Fall USTA Southern Combo Doubles League
2023 Season

The USTA Southern Combo Doubles League is one of the fastest growing adult programs in the USTA's Southern Section. This program features Men's and Women's teams playing 3 doubles matches. The doubles teams use a combined NTRP rating that does not exceed the level on which they are playing. The unique format is what makes the COMBO DOUBLES league so fun! It also offers the chance to play with different people and to make new friends.
