CVTA is making major changes to the way that league fees will work. Currently, when you pay $27 for a USTA league in the CVTA, $15 of the fee covers court fees. The other $12 goes to Tennislink, USTA Georgia, paying the LLC, and covering entry fees for the state tournaments for winning teams. Beginning in August, court fees will not be included in your league fee when you sign up for a USTA league in the CVTA. When you sign up on Tennislink, your fee will go down from $27 to $12. Each player will then be responsible for paying their own court fees. The total amount that you pay will not go up. For some people, it will actually go down. This change also allows teams to decide where they play their home matches. We will be moving to an actual home and away schedule. Teams will have to pay courts fees at their home courts. Visitors will not have to pay court fees at away matches. Each facility may choose to charge per player, or per team. Some facilities offer memberships that include league fees. All courts in Floyd, Polk, and Chattooga counties will be eligible to be approved for league play. Currently Etowah, Alto, Rome Tennis Center at Berry, Rome Tennis Center Downtown, Lawrence Preserve, and Coosa Country Club are approved for league play. Lawrence Preserve is not approved for 18 & Over matches, but is approved for all other leagues. If you would like to get other courts approved, contact Eddie Stokes. The requirements to have courts approved are that they have to be in good playing condition, if the league plays after 2:00 pm, the courts must have lights, and there have to be enough courts to play all lines of the match. CVTA is currently working on rewriting the league rules to reflect these changes. Captains can contact each facility for specifics on pricing. We encourage captains to contact facilities early as some facilities have limited court availability.
