2020 Norfolk Fall 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. Substitution and coaching are allowed during the match.
 
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.
Virginia Beach League, minimum of 6 players for a Team (not including subs) - maximum 10 players (subs will also be included in the 10 max).

Adults (18 & over) may sign up as a team or as an individual.

Sign-Up Deadline: November 11, 2020
Teams deadline to sign up November 11, 2020 - minimum of 6(six) players for a Team. So I can know how many teams in the league. However players can continue to signup after the deadline.

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.

Can I register as an individual/substitute/team?
Yes, but specify for what team! Or if you would like to be put on a Team. I will make every effort to find an existing team for you to join. If not, I will place you on a substitute list. You will be called by the league coordinator or a team captain in the event a replacement/sub player is needed.
 
Note to substitute players:
Register with the Team you will be a substitute for. You can only be a Sub on one team in same division. Each time you play, you pay a sub fee. A sub is considered a part of that team.
