Who may join Eastman’s teams?

ECA Members in good standing and players with Summer Memberships or the new Team Membership may participate on Eastman’s teams.

How many teams does the ECTA sponsor?

In 2019, Eastman sponsored five teams: one Men’s A team, two Men’s B teams, and two Women’s B teams.

How much commitment does it take to play on a team?

The summer season generally runs from early June until mid August. Home and away matches are played one evening each week at 6 PM–Tuesdays for the Men’s teams, and Wednesdays for the Women’s. Additionally, regularly scheduled practices are held each week late afternoons or evenings.

How do I join a team?

It’s as simple as contacting one of the team captains for the level you are interested in playing.

How do I know which team to join?

Participation on a specific team is dependent upon a player’s skill as assessed by the NTRP guidelines used by the United States Tennis Association (USTA). Players who are USTA members, or have been within the past three years, have computer-generated ratings from the USTA. Players not familiar with USTA play, may click here for guidelines and videos explaining the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP). Still not sure? Contact any team captain listed above.

Is there a cost to participate? 

There is a cost and these costs vary from year to year. Costs will be posted when league play resumes.

Reservations are required to play on the courts and players. Any Eastman Member in good standing or player who has purchased a full summer membership may reserve a court for 90 minutes on EastmanTennisbookings. Each player’s ID or pass must be hung on the hooks provided at each court during play.

What about rules?

The official set of rules established by the UVCTA is posted via a link on Tennispoint.com in the right navigation bar of most pages.

In Eastman, players take tennis etiquette and good sportsmanship seriously. If you are new to playing team tennis, please take a few minutes to read the Tennis Players’ Code of Conduct, a synopsis of the aforementioned set of the league’s rules.
