What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
The levels of play are 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5 and above.
Players MUST use their current USTA rating, (USTA year end ratings have been updated so please check prior to registration) otherwise self ratings are acceptable but must meet NTRP guidelines and NEW REQUIREMENTS for players in multiple divisions.
All self-rated players must complete a questionaire each season.
 
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.
