How Double Teams Can Be Formed?
All teams are made up of two people. You and your partner will play all your matches together all weekend long. One of the best parts of Racquet War's waterfall format is the ability for players to partner up with anyone at any level. For example, if you have a NTRP USTA 3.5 rating and want to play with a good friend who has a NTRP USTA 5.0 rating you can do so. The format (described below) of the tournament ends up putting you and your partner in the correct bracket for your level. So while we do collect your NTRP rating, it doesn't matter who your partner is.
All teams will start out in a waterfall bracket (see example of a waterfall bracket on the Rules and Regulations page found below). In the waterfall bracket, all teams will play two 8 game no-ad pro sets to determine each doubles team competitive levels. After the two rounds of 8 game pro sets each team will play a minimum of two regular scoring matches with a tiebreaker used as a 3rd set if needed. With this unique format, players do not have to worry about NTRP rating and can partner up with whomever they wish. Teams end up playing against other teams of similar skill in their final bracket. Players will only have the option of playing in one draw, Women's or Mixed Doubles as that in itself will be a ton of tennis for the weekend.
