    To my knowledge there is basically 3 main USTA "seasons".

    Spring - Adult - this is men and women competing against their own gender and own levels in 5 court matches (2 singles, 3 doubles).

    Summer - Mixed Doubles - Pretty self explanatory. From 5.0 to 9.0 mixed doubles (3 doubles courts).

    Fall - Adult Combo - this is men and women playing at a combo rating with higher or lower ranked partners in 3 doubles courts. (6.5 Combo would be a 3.5 + a 3.0 player playing together).

    Fall is next and usually starts in August. I would guess that the exact start date could be earlier or later depending on your section.

    Mixed varies. My mixed league goes from January - April. Then districts is June, and Sectionals is in July/August, and Nationals is in November. Although I believe some mixed leagues start the previous fall, so they might wait 9 months until districts which is weird to me.

    Leagues, and for that matter, league starts, vary by section. The league play that culminates in Nationals are Adult and Senior (50+) with Nationals in October, Mixed with Nationals in November and 50 mixed and super senior (60+), both with Nationals in April. Other local leagues vary by section. In NorCal we also have combo and Super Senior 65s.

    In NorCal the winter leagues (Jan-March/April) are Mixed and Super Senior 65s. Spring leagues (April-June) are the adult leagues. Summer leagues (June-September) include combo, 50 mixed and Super Senior 60s. Fall leagues is regular Senior League Season.
