USTA Leagues

At AVAC® we have a large number of members who participate in all the USTA Leagues. There is league play for adults from ages 18 to 80. Our instructional programs to help improve your match play performance compliment league play. Want to get some non-league match play in? Our staff will help you find matches, you can attend our Friday, Saturday and Sunday drop in match play sessions to find games or join in on our theme tennis socials through out the year.

We have USTA League play for our juniors as well. Starting with our USTA Red, Orange and Green ball matches for our 10 & Under juniors to our USTA Junior Team Tennis League play for our 12-18 year old juniors. The league play is designed for all levels of junior tennis. Our 14 & Under Co-ed Team recently won the California Championships and competed in the Junior Nationals in South Carolina.
