TEAMS!

1. Each team will be comprised of 4 men and 4 women - 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) The 5.0 Divisions 19+ and 50+ - your team "must" all be from the same state. There will be exceptions as some parts of the country don't have enough 5.0 level players. But your team must be approved by the Tournament Director.

WTP CHAMPIONSHIPS - DIVISIONS OFFERED

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

Rosters for all three courts from both teams will be submitted prior to the matches starting. 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 over five days. 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, with the exception of the 5.0 divisions, who will begin on Friday, December 8, thru Sunday - which will be set for the quarters, semis and finals. All final rounds will be played on Sunday.

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.
