TEAMS!

1. Each team will be comprised of 3 men and 3 women (maximum 4m and 4w) - all of the same skill level. For example, your team can be a 3.5 team, as you are all 3.5 level players. (A lower level player may play up one division). Players may also register as an individual, as there are players needing teams and teams needing extra players.

WTP CHAMPIONSHIPS - DIVISIONS OFFERED

(19+ = 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0) (50+ = 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0) (60+ = 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0) (70+ = 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0)

Door prizes will be awarded each day. There will also be a Saturday night event - Comedian Brian Ricci!

TEAM CAPTAINS

CAPTAINS are required for each team. They will gather teammates, register their team name, attend a mandatory captains’ meeting the night before the tournament begins, create lineups for each round of matches, and make sure scorecards are reported to the tournament desk.

TOURNAMENT FORMAT

2. TEAMS will compete against other teams in their age/skill division. Each round a team will play a men's doubles match, a women's doubles match, and a mixed doubles match. Rosters for all three courts from both teams will be submitted 30 minutes prior to the scheduled match. Depending on the number of teams in each division, the format could be round-robin or pool play, with the winners from each pool advancing. Whichever the case, teams are guaranteed "lots" of playing. Each team will play a minimum of 9 matches, but there are no minimum number of teams.

DAILY FORMAT

3. TEAMS will play "every" day, as your team will have a minimum of 9 matches (27 courts) to play.

SCHEDULED MATCHES

4. All matches will be scheduled, so teams will know far in advance how to plan their days or nights, as well as any extracurricular activities.
