USTA League iPhone Application

Great news for USTA League players and captains!  Last week, Apple unveiled our new iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad application, which simplifies and maximizes the way USTA League participants can communicate with their teammates and organize matches. 
The USTA League iPhone application enables USTA League players and captains to track, measure and improve their league and their team at their convenience.  Features of the new application include the ability to:
·    View league schedules
·    Track rosters and records
·    Research statistics and standings
·    Get directions to the next match
·    Find an NTRP rating
·    Report a score from any league match
In its first day of availability, the application made the App Store’s Top 20 for sports applications and received a consumer rating of 5 out of 5 stars!  The application is free and can be downloaded through iTunes.
Many thanks to the cross-functional team spearheaded by Laura Hyman and Amy Schultz and consisting of IT, Advanced Media, Leagues, Membership, Section and Active staff members, who worked together to build this application.  It’s the first-ever app for a USTA program—and there’s more to follow.  Production is underway for an app for tournaments and one for JTT, which will be completed in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
What a great way to start a new year!
