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.

Local League Information & Rules:
We play by all the same rules that are played in the Sectionals and nationals, except one: Scoring. In an effort to shorten up the league time from 6 hours to 5.25 hours... we are playing the same format that the pro's play: 8 total games....and if the score is tied at 4-4 the last person to serve will get to serve one more ball and whoever wins that point wins that set 5-4.
