East Bay (WINTER)
2021 East Bay December Weekend 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 two mixed doubles sets. Total games won from all sets determines the winner. Substitutions and coaching are allowed during the match.
 
What is a WTT team?
A team must have a minimum of two men and two women. We encourage you to form a team with 6 players minimum this allows for periods of rest, player substitutions and missing players. There is a no player maximum for local league play. The average team size is 6 to 10 players. 10 players maximum allowed at National Qualifiers (NQ) and National Championships.
 
Who can play?
Adults, 18 & over using current NTRP ratings or self-rated players
Seniors, 50 & over using current NTRP ratings or self-rated players

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.
