H-Town TeamTennis
2017/2018 H-Town TeamTennis Fall/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 at least 3 men and 3 women registered to begin the season. Additional players may be added during the season, with no maximum for league play. Note: there is a maximum roster size of 10 players for National Qualifier and National Championship tournaments.
 
Who can play?
Adults (18 & over) may sign up as a team or as individuals.
 
When do leagues start?
For the 4.0 Division, play begins in January 2018 and continues through August 2018 (8 matches).

For the 4.5 Division, play begins in February 2018 and continues through July 2018 (6 matches).
 
Sign-Up Deadline: January 31st, 2018
For the 4.5 division, all fees and initial rosters are due by this date. No refunds and/or transfer of payment to another person after the season schedule is published.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
For the 2017/2018 season, we are offering 4.0 and 4.5 levels of play.
 
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 various locations. Each team will have a home court location which will be published on this website when the season schedule is published.
 
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), as part of a partial team (we will help assign other players to complete your team), or a full team.
 
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?
League fees are $200 per team for the first 6 players. An early-bird discount of $25 is available for teams that register by December 15th, and returning teams from 2016-2017 will receive an additional $25 discount. Additional players are $20.00 each ($10 if added after April 15th, 2018). See local rules for details on new team referral discounts. Tennis balls are included in the league fees.

For the 4.5 division, please contact the League Director for special pricing due to the shortened season (6 matches).
 
League winners qualify for a National Qualifier?
Winning teams advance to the WTT National Qualifiers. Your team is eligible to participate in a NQ for up to one year from the end date of your league. For every four (4) teams in any official World TeamTennis (WTT) local league division, one (1) team will be eligible to participate in a NQ. Click here for more details.
