The MLTC has partnered with Universal Tennis (UT) to manage UT Massachusetts Flex Leagues, giving players of all ages the opportunity to widen their tennis circles. The matches in UT’s Flex Leagues count towards players’ Verified Universal Tennis Rating (UTR).
Scores are posted via the UT platform and standings are listed for each division. All division winners receive a championship’s prize.
What is a “flex league?”
Flex leagues are supremely flexible leagues in that opponents choose a day and time to play their match that is convenient to both players. Players are placed in divisions based on their UTR and geographic location. Players are guaranteed four matches to be played over a five-week session.
What skill level is required to play in the League?
There are divisions that are appropriate for advanced beginners all the way up to advanced players at the college level. If you are good enough to serve the ball and hit a few shots, then we will work hard to place you in a division that is the appropriate level for you.
Where are the matches played and what are the rules and format?
Matches are played at courts agreed upon by you and your opponent. During the indoor season, if you are an MLTC member, you can play your matches at either MLTC East or West. In fact, if you are a West member, you can still book your match at MLTC East by calling the front desk and having them book it for you. Keep in mind, though, that there will be times when you’ll be playing at your opponent’s home courts. During the outdoor season, players can play at any place that is convenient for both of them.
The rules and format of the flex league can be found here.
What is the cost?
The Singles (Adults & Juniors) league cost is $25 for Power Subscribers and $35 if you are not a Power Subscriber.
