2019 USTA Montana League Regulations

Changes to USTA MT League Regulations for the 2019 Season are as follows:

In accordance with USTA Intermountain’s League Regulations, Montana has enacted a residency regulation for USTA league teams:

  • A “Montana team” is a team that maintains a minimum of 50% of its total number of registered players from Montana.
  • To be “from Montana,” a player must have resided in Montana for a minimum of 30 consecutive days over the past year.
  • Registration is open to non-Montana teams only for those divisions with two or fewer teams registered after the first registration deadline. See Registration Deadlines, Table 3.
