Rules of Tennis - Including The Code

Use the drop-down menu to find specific rules for USTA League or Tournaments.

The Rules of Tennis and Cases and Decisions are the official rules of the International Tennis Federation (ITF), of which the United States Tennis Association (USTA) is a member.

USTA Comments have the same weight and force in USTA tournaments as do ITF Cases and Decisions. When a match is played without officials, The Code shall apply in any situation not covered by the Rules of Tennis. Except where otherwise stated, every reference in the Rules of Tennis to the masculine includes the feminine gender.
