If you want to play with friends but are all at different NTRP levels, Tri-Level League is for you.
Tri-level is a round robin competition with teams consisting of doubles teams at 3 NTRP levels.
Line 1 is a team consisting of the highest ntrp of the offered level, Line 2 is the second highest, and Line 3 is the lowest level of the offered level.
Men and Women are separate divisions.
There are two levels we are offering this year: the 3.0/3.5/4.0 level or the 3.5/4.0/4.5 level.
Players may play on only one team per level, but can play on teams of different levels.
Players may play on a 3.0/3.5/4.0 AND a 3.5/4.0/4.5 team.
However, no schedule concessions will be made to accommodate players who choose to play multiple levels.
A player may play one level higher (.5) than their NTRP level, but at least one player per line must be at level.
Players must be 18 years old by December 31, 2019 and a USTA member to play.
Players must have a valid Computer 2018 YEAR-END RATING to play in the 3.5/4.0/4.5 group (no self-rates).
Players with an A-appeal rating, M-mixed exclusive rating, T-tournament exclusive rating, and S- self rating are not allowed to play in the 3.5/4.0/4.5 tri-level division.
Captains in the 3.5/4.0/4.5 group make sure your players all have computer ratings.
The system will not prevent a self-rated player from registering for your team.
If their rating is discovered after they have begun play in a match, that line will be defaulted, even after the event has been completed.
Match format: Three lines of doubles with regular scoring best 2 of 3 sets with Coman tiebreak in lieu of 3rd set.
Minimum 2 players per level (6), maximum 12 (absolutely no added players to rosters after the start of the tournament).
Players are required to play one match in order to advance to Texas Sectionals.
Sectionals: February 7-9, 2020 Austin, TX
National Invitational: March 2020, at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, CA. (Only the 3.5/4.0/4.5 level can advance to this event.)
