    Teams

    • Teams are made up of a minimum 4 players, with an unlimited numbers of players allowed to be on a team, but we recommend no more than 6 total.
    • Each team will need at least two males and two females.
    • Teams can have 4 males and 2 females, or 4 females and 2 males, or 3 males and 3 females.
    • Players can be of any level. Your team level is determined by the following formula and example. The average NTRP rating of your TOP two men and your TOP two women is used to determine a team’s level of competition. For example if you have 6 players on your team:

      • Male A = 4.0
      • Male B = 3.5
      • Male C = 3.5
      • Female A = 3.0
      • Female B = 3.5
      • Female C = 4.0

      • Male A and Male B = 7.5
      • Female B and Female C = 7.5
      • Total = 15
      • Divide by 4 = 3.75
      • Round UP to nearest NTRP = 4.0
      • This team would play in the 4.0 division. All team rating round up to the nearest NTRP.
