Message From Our Local League Coordinator

Greetings Meta Tennis Friends:

Hope everyone enjoyed our 2016 META leagues. Hope all had a great holiday and a nice break from tennis.  Here’s to 2017 being a better year yet for league play in our area. Some major changes for 2017 Southern and Tennessee rules relevant to us: 

  • USTA LEAGUE (NATIONAL):  2.05E(2) Ratings for players 65 & over who are moved up will be published; automatic appeal will be granted upon request (through TennisLink auto- appeal function).
  • USTA LEAGUE (TENNESSEE):  All teams must have 50% in-state residence

Basically if you are 65 & over and got bumped up be sure to appeal and you will be approved for lowering your rating. 

META local rules as well as all the relevant dates and sign-up deadlines for each league being offered have been posted to the META website. All adult leagues are now forming and are open for registration.

I am excited and looking forward to our 2017 league season!  If you have any questions or suggestions please let me know and I will bring them to our Board to see what we can do to make META league play even better.


Let the games begin! …Soon!


Alice Zhang
