H-Town TeamTennis
2016/2017 H-Town TeamTennis Fall/Winter League

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. Click here to view WTT Rules
 
What is a WTT team?
A team must have at least 3 men and 3 women registered to begin the season. Additional players may be added during the season, with no maximum for league play. Note: there is a maximum roster size of 10 players for National Qualifier and National Championship tournaments.
 
Who can play?
Adults (18 & over) may sign up as a team or as individuals.
 
When do leagues start?
Play begins December 3rd, 2016 and continues through June 17th, 2017.
 
Sign-Up Deadline: November 22nd, 2016
All money and paperwork are due by this date. No refunds and/or transfer of payment to another person after the season schedule is published.

NOTE: Registration deadline for 3.5 and 4.5 divisions has been extended to December 23rd, 2016!
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
The levels of play being offered are 3.5, 4.0, and 4.5. In subsequent seasons we may offer Open and Senior divisions if there is enough interest.
 
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 various locations. Each team will have a home court location which will be published on this website when the season schedule is published.
 
Can I register as an individual/substitute/team?
You can register as an individual (we will make every effort to find an existing team for you to join), as part of a partial team (we will help assign other players to complete your team), or a full team.
 
Why register via the Internet?
You are not an official league participant until you have registered online. When you register via the Internet site you will be e-mailed league information during the season and your WTT Member Benefits (WTT Point of Contact Newsletter, discounts on hotel, rental cars, 2 for 1 tickets, plus more).
 
What is the cost?
League fees are $150 per team for the first 6 players if team is registered by November 15th (December 15th for 3.5 and 4.5 divisions), or $175 afterwards. Additional players are $20.00 each ($10 if added after March 1st, 2017). Tennis balls are included in the league fees.
 
League winners qualify for a National Qualifier?
Winning teams advance to the WTT National Qualifiers. Your team is eligible to participate in a NQ for up to one year from the end date of your league. For every four (4) teams in any official World TeamTennis (WTT) local league division, one (1) team will be eligible to participate in a NQ. Click here for more details.
