Metrotennis Rec League
2021 Metrotennis Rec League - Spring

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.

No maximum, however only 10 players can compete in playoffs. This allows for periods of rest and missing matches. Players may be added to the roster until the time of the match.

The coordinator can provide you with names of players looking for teams.
 
Who can play?
Adults (18 & over) may sign up as a team or as an individual.
 
When do leagues start?
Play begins in March 2021.
 
Sign-Up Deadline: March 15
All captain registrations and paperwork are due by this date. Team court fees must be paid in full within two weeks of the season.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
The levels of play being offered are 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5
 
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 the following locations:

Roosevelt Island Racquet Club
West Side Tennis Center (Forest Hills)
 
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 season, we will place you on a substitute list. You will be contacted if a team needs a replacement player.
 
Note to substitute players:
Substitutes must register for the WTT Rec League in order to be on "sub list". Match fees, if any, will be determined between you and the captain.

Once you play for a team twice, you become a permanent part of their roster, and no longer a substitute.
 
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 $1280.00 per team (paid on the Metrotennis website).
The player WTT Registration fee is $25.00 per person.
 
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.
