The USTA Pro Circuit is world class tennis administered on the local level and played on local courts as part of the fabric of communities nationwide. The USTA launched its Pro Circuit in 1979 to provide players with the opportunity to gain professional ranking points and has since grown into the largest developmental circuits in the world. There are nearly 100 tournaments throughout the country and prize money ranging from $10,000 to $100,000.
