    The cheaper one.

    Your partcipation in adult versus junior tournaments/leagues is based on your age not which membership you bought. So save a few bucks.

    If you can afford it, the Lifetime Membership. It's expensive, like $500, but its worth it if you plan on staying with USTA for the long run. It also saves you the trouble of having to repay for your dues because your membership expires in the middle of a season.

    A long time ago they gave out a leather jacket with the lifetime membership. I wish I knew what happened to mine haha.

    Last time I checked, which admittedly was several years ago, the lifetime membership was $750.

    You could very well be right, it might even be more now. Last time I checked was more than "several years ago". I think I first registered in 00/01. Forgot to take into account all those wars we've been getting ourselves into and then adjusting for the rate of inflation!!!!!!

    Anyone a current lifetime buyer? Is it like a grand now?

    Make TT better, use the Ignore List!
    If I was 18 again the very last thing I'd do with $750 was buy a lifetime USTA membership.

    Try to buy the five-year junior membership right now.

    Might save yourself a few bucks in the long run.

    Some one sure sounds mad.

    If you are just about to turn 19 you should get a junior membership because its cheaper, and just transfers over when you turn 19. At least this is what I was told by the membership lady at the USTA sectional office I interned at
