Mike Hall & Yves Boulais: Next-Gen Tennis League

Our league is unique and serves a great purpose to the competitive tennis community. This co-ed league is based on the UTR (Universal Tennis Rating), which allows players to compete in competitive matches and improve their rating. This concept provides an opportunity for former college players and pros to stay involved in the competitive scene as well as allowing aspiring juniors and current pro players to compete close to home. Most importantly, it gives our developing juniors with a pathway to maximize their UTR rating. By doing this, they can maximize their potential to pursue U.S. College opportunities without the traveling expenses involved in pursuing a high ITF ranking.
