New Player Liaison

If you are a new Player, you may need some help.  The LCTA has established a New Player Liaison job for just that purpose.  Charlotte Gerber, our liaison, will help you find a team or a facility.  She can give you advice on other things too, like how to 'self-rate'.
Charlotte is happy to help you!  You can reach her at charlottetennis@hotmail.com or by phone at 843-330-0014


The Lowcountry Tennis Associations runs local league tennis programs throughout Charleston, Berkeley, Colleton and Dorchester counties. With players ranging in age from 18 to 80, we have the second highest participation of any area in the South including areas many times our size. The more players we have, the better!  

For 18+ and 40+ teams, matches consist of three doubles and two singles courts. Seniors play three doubles courts.

To play USTA Leauge Tennis, you need: a place to play, a USTA membership, and a rating. 

Charleston has some of the finest facilities in the Southeast. If you are not already a member of one, go to our FACILITIES page to learn a more about places to play tennis in the Charleston area. The facility that you join can also help you find a team.

To join the USTA, go to their MEMBERSHIP PAGE and follow the instructions to join. It's easy and your membership includes a subscription to TENNIS magazine! 

To join a team, you will need your USTA membership number and your team number (provided by your captain) to register on TENNISLINK.  

As a new player, you will be asked to determine a self-rating (if you do not already have a previous USTA rating). The main TENNISLINK page will walk you through the self-rating process.  At the top of the TENNISLINK page, select "NTRP Rating Help" for tips and instructions.  Answering the questionnaire during registration will help you decide the appropriate level for you to play. Our levels range from 2.5 for true beginners to 4.5 for advanced league players.  5.0 and above players do not play a local league, but advance directly to Sectional or National playoffs. By far, our largest levels are 3.0 and 3.5, with the 4.0 level quickly growing.
