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 1 set 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 a minimum of two men and two women at the match. We encourage you to have a team with 6 players minimum at the match this allows for periods of rest and player substitutions. There is a no player maximum for local league. The average team size is 10-14 players. Additional players can be added during the playing season. 10 players maximum allowed at National Qualifiers (NQ) and National Championships.

When do leagues start?

Sign-Up Deadline: No deadline for individual players
Players can register at any time (no deadline) up to the day of the tournament and must be registered before playing in a match or risk having all games won by the player deleted. Captains are responsible for ensuring all players have been registered & pay the fees before playing.
 
What Divisions (levels of play) are offered?
The levels of play being offered are 3.5 (18+ divisions)
 
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.
