Northwest Georgia World TeamTennis
2017 Northwest Georgia WTT Winter League

What is World TeamTennis?
WTT is co-ed teams competing in a format that consists of 5 no-ad sets. One set each of men's and women's doubles followed by men's and women's singles, ending with 1 set 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 three men and three women, as a minimum. (10 players maximum). This allows for periods of rest and missing matches. We also provide a list of approved substitutes for team back-ups.
 
Who can play?
Adults (18 & over) may sign up as a team or as an individual.
The North West Georgia WTT League will be hosting 3 separate NTRP Levels see below.

NOTE: Team Practices will be available at the Rome Tennis Center (WTT strategy, team strategy, doubles strategy, and more.)
 
When do leagues start?
Before the league begins, join us for the Mylan WTT Opening Mixer on Saturday, Feb 4th 12:00-4:00pm ($5.00pp). All Registered players are invited to join us in a fun mixer to meet all the league players and go over rules and formats of WTT. League Play begins February 22nd, 2017 and continues through to April 5th, 2017 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM. Playoff dates and awards party are to be determined.
 
Sign-Up Deadline: Friday, February 17, 2017
All money and paperwork are due by this date. No refunds and/or transfer of payment to another person after the season starts. You can register at www.rometenniscenter.com and find "Programs/Events".
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
The levels of play being offered are
2.5-3.0 Division
3.0-3.5 Division
4.0-4.5 Division
 
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?
You can register as an individual (we will make every effort to find an existing team for you to join in any given season), as part of a partial team ( we will assign other players to complete your team), or a full team. If you cannot commit to the entire season, we will place you on a substitute list. You will be called by myself or a team captain in the event they need a replacement player. You can register at www.rometenniscenter.com and find "Programs/Events".
 
Note to substitute players:
Substitutes do not have to pay for the league 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.
