USTA-Montana is a District within the Intermountain Tennis Association(ITA) which itself is a Section within the United States Tennis Association(USTA).

We are here to help make your tennis experience more enjoyable, accessible, and memorable!
UPDATE: The Under 40 League has been postponed due to conflicting events in Bozeman the same weekend. We’ll include an update with new dates/location soon.
A fun, social tennis club for adults of all skill levels to start or continue playing tennis. This club is all about having fun, making new friends, and improving your tennis game while you’re at it! Best of all, the participation fee is probably less than you spent at the bar last weekend. There are no excuses – grab some friends and choose to try something new and fun!
This team format is social, fun and coed. It’s non-advancing and includes any combination of men’s and women’s singles, doubles and mixed, with the option to play at beginner/intermediate or intermediate/advanced level.
