Manhattan Country Club WTT
2017 Manhattan Country Club - 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 two men and two women, as a minimum to be eligible to compete. Teams are able to have up to 10 full time players maximum. The benefit of having 10 players is that a full roster allows for periods of rest and enables players to miss matches. All teams are allowed a maximum of 2 substitutes per season.
 
Who can play?
Manhattan Country Club Members (18 & over) may sign up as a team or as an individual.
 
When do leagues start?
The upcoming winter season begins on Monday, February 6th, 2017. Matches will be played every Monday from 7:00-9:00 pm at The Club for 6 consecutive weeks.
 
Sign-Up Deadline:
No refunds and/or transfer of payment to another person will be accepted after the season starts. Please contact league director for any late entries.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
The divisions of play be offered this season will be 3.5 and 4.0. The 3.5 division has a mix of 3.0 beginners and 3.5 beginner/intermediate players. The 4.0 division has a nice blend of strong 3.5 players as well as more advanced 4.0 players. If you can serve and rally you will be a great addition to the league!
 
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.
