**5.0 level of play in 18 & Over is now 5.0+ which allows a team roster to include up to 2 players from the next higher level (5.5).  The higher level plus players must play the #1 position, either #1 Singles or #1 Doubles.  Only one Plus (+) player can compete in a team match when the league utilizes only three individual matches within a team match. Additionally, a 4.5 player may not play in the #1 Singles position unless no other 5.0 player is available.
