USTA Leagues & ECTC Teams
The United States Tennis Association (USTA) leagues are nationally organized for amateur players of all levels. ECTC encourages its members to form teams to compete in the various team competitions. ECTC sponsors, i.e., grants a stipend to help pay entry fees and court reservation fees, for all ECTC teams.
ECTC MEMBERSHIP & CITY OF EL CERRITO TENNIS PERMITS
To qualify for ECTC sponsorship, all team members must be current ECTC members and hold valid City of El Cerrito tennis court permits. Please refer to Membership page. Team captains are responsible for verifying their team members’ compliance.

All members of a team must have the appropriate National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) rating for that team. The NTRP scale is a measure of playing skills. A rank of beginner is rated at 1.0. Rating ranges increase in increments of .5 up to 7.0, a world class player. Collegiate players are rated between 6.0 and 6.5; an intermediate club player would be rated between 2.5 and 3.5.
The top team in each local division must compete in the sectional playoffs and, if successful, the national playoffs.
It’s a great opportunity to test your skills. Log on to the NorCal USTA website or call the USTA Northern California Section at 510-748-7373 for league information.
