USTA tournaments are run using the USTA platform (Serve Tennis), and tournament registrations are processed through Stripe Express. Every organization needs to set up a Stripe Express account to run tournaments.
Please note Stripe Express is different from Stripe standard. Even if you have a Stripe account, you will still need to set up a Stripe Express account. There can be more than one Stripe Express account per organization.
