The levels of play being offered are 3.5, 4.0, 4.5. A minimum of 4 teams in a division is required for the winning team to be eligible for nationwide WTT Qualifiers.
 
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.

Can I register as an individual/substitute/team?
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU PUT YOUR TEAM TOGETHER AND JOIN AS A TEAM. Priority will be given to complete teams over individual sign-ups. However, you can register as an individual (we will make every effort to find an existing team for you to join in any given division), or as part of a partial team (we will assign other players to complete your team). If you are registering as an individual, your team name will be "Extras" in your division.
 
Note to substitute players:
Individuals who are waiting as "Extras" do not have to pay for the tournament at this time. You must register, however, and your playing is subject to the decision/judgment of the League Director who will independently assess your NTRP rating. If you are put on a team, your payment must be received prior to the 11am start time on Friday, May 17th. Individual payments will be determined by the number of players on a team.
