    I'm looking to start my junior career and progress through the ranks. I was wondering, should I join the ITF, USTA, or both ? Advice would be greatly appreciated:)

    haha i posted a thread about this earlier this month. i had the same question but found out USTA was btr for me than the ITF. If you have 40 bucks to waster for membership fees then go for both of them. ($20 each) For juniors i found that USTA has a btr program, and it comes with tennislink, to find tournys. USTA is the better buy
