Hawaii Pacific Tennis Foundation
2017 HPTF November Weekend

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. Team with the most matches won is the division winner. Substitution and coaching are allowed as long as it does not interfere with continuous play.
 
What is a WTT team?
A team roster must have a minimum of two men and two women, ten players maximum. We recommend at least 6 team members, as this will allow for periods of rest & missing matches.
 
Who can play?
Adults (18 & over) may sign up as a team or as an individual.
 
When do leagues start?
Divisions will be played during a three-day tournament on November 10, 11 and 12, 2017
 
Sign-Up Deadline: 2 weeks prior to event
Team Captain registration due Sunday, October 29th. Team Player registration and payment due before first match.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
3.0, 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5, 18+ divisions will be offered.
 
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 Patsy Mink Memorial Tennis Center, Central Oahu Regional Park.
 
Can I register as an individual/substitute/team?
Most participants register as a team. If you register as an individual, please let Dav know by email at dav@hawaiitennis.org. We will let team captains know that we have players interested in playing, or if we have enough individuals for a team, we will help form one.
 
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?
$20/player.
Make checks payable to "HPTF". Full payment will be collected from team captain on day of first match.
