Cattail Creek Country Club Tennis | USTA | Glenwood, MD | Howard County

Participation in the United States Tennis Association (USTA) league at Cattail Creek continues to grow year-by-year. Howard County boasts the largest number of USTA members in the state!

USTA league participation is open to players of all levels, and all Members are encouraged to participate in one of our programs. There are a wide range of levels and we are happy to help you begin your tennis undertaking by helping you find the appropriate league.  

USTA has two divisions: Adult and Mixed. Within each division, there are several leagues. You can read more about USTA leagues by clicking here.

Adult 18 & Over League and Adult 40 & Over League  

The format of this league is 2 lines of singles and 3 lines of doubles. We are offering 2.5W, 3.0W, 3.5W/M and 4.0W/M levels. Women's matches are typically played daytime during the week.  Men's matches are typically scheduled for evenings and some weekend mornings.  

In addition to these offerings, we would like to add a 3.0 Men's League to the 'Adult 18 & Over' and/or 'Adult 40 & Over' leagues, depending on participation interest. If you are a player interested in joining a 3.0 Men's league, please contact Liz Baker.

Combo Mixed League

In lieu of the traditional Combo League that was held last year, we have decided to add the new Combo Mixed League this season. This league will consist of the standard Combo format, but will be open as a mixed league with these levels:

-5.5
-6.5
-7.5
-8.5

Your rating, plus your partner's rating, equals the level in which you will play; your combined rating can be lower than the level, but never higher. That means that a 3.0 player may play with a 2.5-rated player at the 5.5 level, or with a 3.5 at the 6.5 level, etc. The different levels give you a chance to play with and against other players that you may not normally be paired with.  We will play this league weekday evenings and weekends starting in August.  This league will play weekday evenings and weekends beginning in September. Combo mixed winning teams will advance to a Regional Championship in 2018.  

*Please note that the start dates, play times and locations are subject to change. Amendments to these will be corresponded through both email and social media.

Men & Women Tri-Level Leagues
This league will consist of three different levels that will play in order of strength. This means, for example, the highest level will play at the D1 position and the lowest level will play at the D3 position. To ensure fairness among all players, you must play at your level. We are able to offering the follow levels:

· Women's -  [ 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 ] and/or [ 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 ] and/or [ 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 ] 
· Men's - [ 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 ] and/or [ 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 ]


Other combinations will be considered if there is any interest.

There is a required minimum of two players at each level to form a team, and the roster will be capped at 16 players. To ensure fairness among all players, you must play at your level. If there are enough players for the other levels, we will accommodate them.
