Lakeridge Tennis Club
2016 Lakeridge Tennis Club August Tournament

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. Total games won from all sets determines the winner. Substitutions and coaching are allowed during the match.
 
What is a WTT team?
A team must have two men and two women, as a minimum. This allows for periods of rest and missing matches.
 
Who can play?
Adults (18 & over) may sign up. You must be 50 years old to sign up for the senior teams.
 
When do leagues start?
2016 schedule: We will play matches over three days this season, Friday, August 12th, all day on Saturday and Sunday, August 13 & 14. Team registration closes on Friday, July 29. Individuals may register for a team up until they play their match. ONLY 6 teams will be accepted per level. If one level is under the six teams, another level will be allowed to have additional teams. This will be determined by July 29. For a captain to sign up a team, please call or email league coordinator, Phyllis Blackwell, with name and level.

 
Sign-Up Deadline: July 29, 2016
Team registration opens Monday, June 10th and will stay open through Friday, July 29. Please contact Phyllis Blackwell, League coordinator, to sign up. Only a captain needs to sign up a team and teammates must be registered by the time they play.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
Division of play being offered are 18 and over 3.5, 4.0 & 4.5, and senior (50 & over) 3.5 and 4.0. All teams must have a minimum of four teams in their division to qualify for a National WTT event.
 
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.
