VTF Richmond Fall Tournament #1
2018 VTF Richmond Fall Tournament #1

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. (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.
 
When do leagues start?
Play begins Friday, October 19, 2018 and continues through to Sunday, October 21, 2018 (if nec).
Friday Start times are 6 pm and 8 pm
Saturday start times are 6 pm and 8 pm
Sunday (if nec) start times are 6 pm

Players party on Saturday night. We will have food and drinks provided.
 
Sign-Up Deadline: Saturday, Oct 13 by 9 pm
All teams and players need to register before play. I just need teams registered by Oct 13 at 9 pm. Do not register a team unless you have the minimum number of players. If you need help email me first and I can help find you players.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
The levels of play being offered are 3.0, 3.5,4.0. Please read below how to form your team. All players must also have a NTRP rating. Any self rated players will need to be evaluated before the event begins.
 
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?
We will announce the venue by Oct 13. Please check back.
 
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 tournament that is ok as long as you play a minimum of 2 matches to become eligible to compete in a NQ.
 
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 $32/person and $10/guest of the players party on Saturday.
 
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.
