The Recreational level is CSSC's most basic level of play and equivalent to the USTA Ratings of 2.5-3.5. You can think of it as the beginner level. Participants that play at this level are looking to first and foremost play their sport for fun. While competition may be important to them it is not necessarily the top priority.
The intermediate level is geared towards participants who more experienced than the Recreational level player and are seeking a little bit more competition, equivalent to the USTA Ratings of 3.0-4.0. It’s a step up from Rec level with most players having a bit more experience. Participants playing at this level have a good knowledge of the rules and have played for a few seasons.
The Competitive level is geared for participants with good experience playing their respective sport and who enjoy the competition of the sport as much as anything. In Tennis, this would be equivalent to USTA ratings of 4.5 and higher. This level is CSSC's top level. Participants at this level will have high school and even college experience playing their sport competitively.
The Open level is available to all levels of play. It is "open" to everyone. It is a combination of skill levels that usually skews towards the intermediate level, depending on the sport.
