Re: USTA Membership

You have to be a member in order to play in USTA leagues, that's one of the greater values of being a USTA member.

Re: USTA Membership

It's kind of a waste of money unless you are going to play in USTA leagues. You don't need to be a member to play the Pro Circuit. Did you sign up online or did you actually speak to someone?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: USTA Membership

I'm a member, and like they said, you really just need it for leagues and tournaments at clubs...

MONICA

Jesus answered and said to him[Nicodemus, a Pharisee],"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again[of the Spirit/above], he cannot see the kingdom of God."--John 3:3

TRANSLATION---Good works CANNOT save you from hell! Turn your live to Jesus. He wants to develop a relationship with you today!

I will worship Jesus forever!

Go Monica and Guga!!

That's not why I joined Fee, I already qualify to play Pro Circuit with my IPIN etc. I just wanted to join anyway-I did it online, yeah.

Re: USTA Membership

I play in a league...so I need it. And I do enjoy the magazine. The other nice (albeit) small benefit has to do with tickets for certain events. Members got first/early priority to buy DC Tie packages and we get a discount day at the Legg Mason (which is my only nearby tournament...and the "discount" is for a mid-week thing and is actually through my local "section"...which, however, I'm a member of by virture of my USTA membership and league fees).

In the grander scheme of things, I do think...hope...being a member...helps support the sport. I like to complain a lot about the USTA but I think their Welcome Center campaign is a step in the right direction. Lots more to be done though...

I love my girls.

Same here. I joined USTA for some of the leagues I am in, as well as a few of the small local tournaments I have been in. The discounts havent really been anything special, but yeah the cool thing was being able to get DC tickets early. I dont know, for me since I am under 18 and it only costs me 15 bucks, just the magazine is worth it. But yeah, anything to help promote tennis is fine by me.

Re: USTA Membership

Since you signed up online you may get an email from them in the next few days. Not sure they do international memberships. Keep me posted.

Re: USTA Membership

I've been signed up since I was about 10 and I have a lifetime membership.

I absoultly love getting the magazines every month and luckily I'll always continue to keep getting them. But the main reason I signed up was to play tournaments so it's 100% worth it personally.

The only benefits I can think about are USO related.

Mardy Fish for president.
