When do leagues start?
Our winter league starts the weekend of January 7 and runs through April. Matches can be scheduled Friday evenings (between 7pm-10pm), and Saturday afternoons/early evenings.

3.5 Playoffs- April 2 @ 530pm, April 8 @ 7pm
4.0 Playoffs - April 2 @ 4pm
4.5 Playoffs - April 1 @ 7pm
 
Sign-Up Deadline: December 10, 2021
ALL players must be registered in the system by December 10. If you play in 2 divisions, you must register twice. Schedules will be released before Christmas.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
3.5 - Includes 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0 players
4.0 - Includes 3.5, 4.0, and 4.5 players
4.5 - Includes 4.0, 4.5, and 5.0 players
The Top 2 Men & Top 2 Women on your roster MUST average at or below the division rating level. This will be checked prior to creating the schedule & any inaccurate ratings will be asked to adjust prior to your first match.

Example for A Team of 10 players regarding Top 2 men & Top 2 women:
-4.5 Division Team: 5.0 M + 4.5 M + 4.5 W + 4.0 W = 18/4= 4.5
-4.5 Division Team That Does Not Work: 5.0 M + 4.5 M + 4.5 W + 4.5 W = 4.625
 
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.
