I. League Format
The Raleigh World Team Tennis League will consist of city, club and subdivision teams who can guarantee the use of two lit tennis courts to play their matches. The league will be divided into NTRP levels, playing on these evenings at 7:00pm: 2.5 Tue, 3.0 Mon, 3.5 Thur, 4.0 Wed, 4.5 Tue and Seniors 3.5 Mondays and Seniors 4.0 on Tuesdays. Players are not required to have a USTA rating and can self-rate using the National Tennis Rating Program. In forming teams, remember that a player may play above his or her level but not below (i.e. a 3.5 player may play at the 4.0 level but not at the 3.0 level).
After both mixed doubles sets are finished and scores are recorded and totaled, the procedure is as follows:
Players are NOT allowed to warm up on any other courts unless there is equal court space for both teams.
home team is responsible for providing two cans of new tennis balls for matches.
If it starts to rain or the lights go out during a match, team captains should get together and make a decision as to playing conditions. If it is determined that play cannot resume within thirty minutes, then the match will be called off for the night. Any completed individual matches will stand and any matches in progress will be made up from the beginning (i.e.: 0-0). Teams do not have to use the same lineups for the make-up match.
Make up matches should be scheduled Friday, 7-10pm, the same week of the original match date. If Friday is rained out or already has a makeup match scheduled, then the match should be scheduled for the following Friday. Any team that cannot field 2 men and 2 women forfeits the match. The home team captain should reserve 2 courts, Friday, 7-10pm. City courts will always be available on Friday nights, $3/hr.
If the last match of the season is rained out and the rescheduled Friday match is also rained out, the match should be scheduled the next week on the same day and time that the matches are usually scheduled. If that match is rained out then it should be scheduled on Friday.
* Team captains are responsible for reserving all make up matches with their facility. A fee will incur if you are a club team needing/using city courts.
winning team captain, or their representative, is responsible for entering the
match score onto www.wtt.com within
2 days of the match. After 2 days, either team may enter the score.
The league will run 9 weeks. If 2 teams are tied with identical records, the League champion will determined as follows:
Fewest individual matches lost in the head to head match(es)
Fewest sets lost in the head to head match(es)
Fewest games lost in the head to head match(es)
Because of byes and the varying number of teams who may sign up, teams may not be playing the same number of matches and
may not play all teams. If 2 teams have the same number of team losses then winning % will determine the winner.
