Many AVAC tennis members participate in USTA League play. It's a great way to get to know other members and be involved in play that is both competitive and fun! Depending on your age group, you may be able to play in one or more leagues at any time of the year.
AVAC charges a $20 administrative fee for each team you play on.
JOIN A TEAM PLAYING NOW
You may be able to join a team in a league that has already started its season. Contact the AVAC USTA Coordinator, Mary Lehner at [email protected], to see if this is possible.
SIGN UP FOR THE NEXT SEASON
Winter leagues will play from early January through mid-March. (See the calendar below for league details.)
AVAC registration for these leagues will be from October 23 through November 12. Late registrants are eligible to play on any team that still has room, but will be charged a $20 late fee unless a team is actively seeking more players.

LET US KNOW ABOUT ANY ISSUES

AVAC USTA Policies & Procedures
USTA League Coordinator
Mary worked at IBM for 34 years as a software developer, but always maintained a life in the "parallel universe" of physical activity. She ran a Karate school with her husband for 25 years, ran competitive corporate track with IBM, played traditional Japanese drums with the San Jose Taiko performance group, and rode her own Harley across the US.
Mary joined AVAC in 2002 to start swimming as a lower impact activity. But she soon discovered the social and competitive pleasure of playing on AVAC tennis teams. In 2015 she took on the job she now loves of coordinating the USTA teams at AVAC. Mary supplements her tennis with Pilates 2-3 times per week for all-round strength and flexibility.
