Thank you for your interest in The ability to sign-up for an OTZ Membership was turned off on April 25. It is now back on for at least a few days.

Please submit a Feedback if you have any questions.




There is an OTZ membership plan for everyone's needs. The cost for the 2024 Girls Season is $27.95 for fans/parents/players, and $36.95 for high school coaches. The $99 Team Membership Deal provides the most value. It provides Player Profiles for up to ten varsity players, a Coach Profile, and web site access for the players and coach. Examples of the Team Special deal are Mason and Upper Arlington. Click to view their team pages. There is also now an annual membership for college coaches ($39.95).

Not to make this too confusing (it is), but there is a two step process for those who have never been an OTZ Member.

Step 1: Please pay via PayPal, credit card, or check. Please make sure that the drop down menus are the same. For example, if you want a $36.95 Coach Membership, select that choice in the PayPal payments area and in the OhioTennisZone sign-up area. Special note: If your school has an OTZ Team Membership for this season, no payment is necessary. Please double check this first before paying.

Step 2: Enter your user name and password in the gray area below to gain access to OhioTennisZone.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Are you distributing free memberships? Yes. This site was created to recognize and benefit the kids. Others who can recognize and benefit the kids include members of the press. If they request memberships, they will be provided memberships free of charge. Hopefully this will promote additional newspaper articles from the press. Note that memberships were free to college coaches, but that is no longer the case. Players who wish to share with college coaches may do so by purchasing a Player Profile. Members of the press need to sign up for the $27.95 membership and then contact me to request a complimentary membership. Members of the press need to refer to this web site at least once a season in their articles, just as this web site provides attribution to newspaper articles..

May I share my membership with others? No, and I do monitor this. Prior to the Player Profile reports, some sharing was permitted but now players can share all of their results via the Player Profile report.

If I join near the end of the season, what will my cost be? It won't decrease. In fact, there were players who joined after the season because they recognized the value of having Player Profiles.
