2021 MAC January Tournament

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. I can do my best to place players on teams who need them, but I can not guarantee it.
 
When do leagues start?
January 30-31
Times and schedule will be announced. Teams are guaranteed 3 rounds of play. You may not play everyone in the flight.

Saturday, January 30 start times: 2 pm, 4 pm, 6 pm, 8 pm

Be sure to read the local league email and rules at the bottom of this page for all other info, especially regarding COVID protocols and our WTT tournament bubble of teams.
 
Sign-Up Deadline: November 30, 2020
You need to register your team first and then players can register. I will alert captains the team is approved/created. Independent players can register without paying until I place them on a team. Once I do place them, I will ask you to register again so payment can be made.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
I will have 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 only. I need at least 4 teams for an event to run.
 
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?
You can register as an individual (we will make every effort to find an existing team for you to join in any given event), 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, you may not get on a team. You will be notified if you are on a team or I can create a new full team.
 
Note to substitute players:
Substitutes do not have to pay for the league at this time. You must register, however, and your playing is subject to the decision/judgment of the League Director who will independently assess your NTRP rating.
 
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?
$40/player.

Tournament Director will provide balls and some snacks (in a safe way).
 
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.
