Oahu District Tennis Association

What is World TeamTennis?
WTT is co-ed teams competing in a format that consists of 6 no-ad sets. One set each of men's and women's doubles followed by men's and women's singles, ending with 2 sets of mixed doubles. Team with the most matches won is the division winner. Substitution and coaching are allowed as long as it does not interfere with continuous play.
 
What is a WTT team?
A team roster must have a minimum of two men and two women, ten players maximum. We recommend at least 6 team members, as this will allow for periods of rest & missing matches.
 
Who can play?
Adults (18 & over) may sign up as a team or as an individual.

Note: Each captain is responsible in providing tennis balls. (5 cans per match)
Penn Championship Extra Duty (black lids) felt balls should be used.

Please read the BULLETIN BOARD tab for more information.

Determining Team Rating
The average NTRP rating of the top two men and top two women players on your team determines the team rating.
 
       Example:
  Joe- 4.5 Mary- 3.5
  Tom- 4.5 Jill-3.5
  Bill- 4.0 Gail- 3.5
  Joe- 4.5 Mary- 3.5
  Jim- 3.5 Joan- 3.0
 
The best two men and two women are: 4.5 + 4.5 + 3.5 + 3.5 = 16. 16 divided by 4 equals 4.0.
 
This team could register for the 4.0 division or a higher division. A team consists of a minimum of two men and two women. Although the limit to the number of team members is ten, the suggested number of players is three men and three women. Click here to determine your NTRP level.
 
Where do we play?
Matches will be played at Patsy Mink Memorial Tennis Center, Central Oahu Regional Park (CORP).
 
Can I register as an individual/substitute/team?
Most participants register as a team. If you register as an individual, please let us know by emailing at odtawtt@gmail.com. We will let team captains know that we have players interested in playing, or if we have enough individuals for a team, we will help form one.
 
Note to substitute players:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing must be maintained off the courts. Face masks must be worn all the times off the courts. Upon registering at the league desk, each player will present their ID and each will have a temperature check. Anyone with temperatures over 100.4 degrees F will NOT be allowed to play. Teams will need to follow USTA Playing Tennis Safely guideline.

Only players playing the match will be allowed on the court. All other teammates must be outside the court and follow social distancing guidelines which means 6 feet apart and wearing face mask.

We reserve the right to inform team captains if any of their teammates or spectators do not abide by this rule and therefore that team will be removed from the competition and forfeit all fees.
