    I live here in Italy and would like to join FIT if it's anything like USTA. I'd like to play some tournaments and get a rating. How would I go about doing so?

    You should go to any tennis club and talk to the local pro.
    He/she will tell you where to go in your area.
    As far as I remember you have to go to a Sport Medicine Center where you will be visited (I think medical examination is mandatory).
    The visit is nothing special. Don't worry.
    And then you should receive your "tessera FIT".

    Here you can find all the forms for joining the FIT ("tesseramento")
    http://www.federtennis.it/QuoteModulistica.asp

    If you have troubles reading italian send me an email and I'll download for you the proper form.

    But still you have to go through a local tennis club ("circolo") to get your tessera FIT
    Ciao

    From the FIT website FAQ section:
    You do need a medical examination

    Ciao G,

    http://www.fitsicilia.it/ would be my region. I've hooked up with a few tennis players already. It hasn't quite warmed up yet. But when it does, we're hitting up the local clubs.

    You can either go in person to the headquarters or get your memebership through your club in Italy. Yes, Italians are much more serious when comes to sport. You will need to pass medical tests (although nothing tragic) and basic vision, to exclude major Health issues.
    This said, you will notice that the tournaments/leagues are organized beautifully, that the ratings are true, that competition is intense.
    Good luck!
