The USTA/Mid-Atlantic Section, one of 17 sections of the United States Tennis Association, is a not-for-profit organization committed to promoting tennis by offering quality recreational and competitive programs for people of all ages and abilities.
The Section has been part of the official governing body for tennis in America since 1923. We serve nearly 40,000 members in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and eastern and southern West Virginia. Tennis players are involved in leagues, tournaments and programs sanctioned by the Section.
Mid-Atlantic holds Sectional Championships in USTA Leagues, Jr. Team Tennis, Junior and Adult Tournaments, and Tennis On Campus.
USTA/Mid-Atlantic's daily operations are carried out by a professional staff based in Reston, Va. It is the USTA's ninth largest Section.
Founded in 1881, the USTA (which has more than 750,000 members) is the national governing body for tennis in the United States, owns the US Open, and administers junior and adult programs in state, regional, and national events.
