I have played K-Swiss for 3+ seasons now and have had a lot of success and 3.5- and now 3.5. My overall record is 21-4 including 4-0 at 3.5. I am a computer rated 3.0 USTA player due to playing early 2007. I have since improved tremendously but have not yet found a team in Atlanta. I would love to play singles for a USTA team inside the perimeter but if not available I will travel a little ways OTP. I have tried using the USTA website to find a team but have had no success after over a year of searching.

Thanks,
JP

Try this group, it's an East Cobb group but there are many people outside of Cobb County who may be able to help.

Really depends on the area of town...but to expand on the 1st response...Terrell Mill Tennis Center has a lot of teams. Roswell Park has a lot of teams (the Senior 3.0 went to Nationals in 2007), and Blackburn Park (south of Dunwoody) has a ton of teams.

I'd use the USTA team locator to reach to the captains, get a practice night and show up. On average, these teams are probably losing 1-2 players a year, so there's probably openings.

That's less likely in the club and neighborhood teams which work hard at keeping the 'hood together.

How do I find a local team? I can't find this feature on tennislink, do I have to be a USTA member in order to access it?

P.S. I'm looking for a 4.0 team near Exton, PA

yeesh. I swear, two years ago, there was a form to fill out that sent your info to your local coordinator. They could then forward it to the captains and say "here's another guy".

Well, I couldn't find that form (maybe it was only when I signed up). However, the process is the same: you click on "Find a Team" and it brings you to the coordinator contacts. You reach out to your local coordinator.

Is there a similar form for PA? I tried to substitute "atlanta" with "philadelphia" but no luck :(
