CTA & Bonita Leagues
Click here to find the USTA Early Start Ratings. (Scroll down to bottom of page for listing of names). If you have early start USTA ratings (ESR) that is different than what you currently have with the CTA & Bonita League, you may use the ESR rating if you want. The CTA & Bonita League does not use the ESR but you can if you want.  An example would be: a USTA 3.0 rated player has been Early Start Rated (ESR) as a 3.5. The player may elect to play either 3.0 or 3.5 for the 2015 Fall CTA & Bonita League.

The CTA and  Bonita Leagues use the USTA national ratings see link at the left ‘USTA Ratings’. They are revised in late November and go into effect 12/31/2015.

USTA Leagues
For the upcoming 2016 USTA Collier County Fall season (playing Oct – Dec. 2015), players must use their Early Start Rating, if they have one.

These ratings are not the final ratings for the 2015 USTA League year.  The computer year end ratings will be generated the last week in November and will include National Championship match play.
