      Womens Interclub Rules

         Teams will be formed in December using yearend USTA ratings for the next year starting in January.

        A2 team:  4.0

        B1 team: 3.5 

        B2 team: 3.0

        C team: 2.5 – Beginner.  Players are placed by the Tennis Director.

        Doubles Day

        Each team is designated 2 courts from 9a.m. -10:30a.m. Doubles day is played year round.

        The object of Doubles Day is for players to practice with players of the same ranking or ability. Doubles Day is a way to get to know players in friendly and social play. Players will play with different partners set up by the Doubles Day captain. If more than 2 courts are needed for Doubles Day the third court of players will sign up for the court when at least 2 players have arrived. When an Interclub match is played at the University Club Doubles Day is cancelled. If one the teams is large enough to designate a third court every week, the Tennis Director may do so.

        A2: Thursday

        B1: Tuesday

        B2: Friday

        C: Wednesday

        Interclub Matches

        Interclub matches will be set up by the Interclub captain. Matches can use up to 4 courts and are played on their designated day.  A minimum of three courts must be used for a match. Matches are scheduled from September-May. When an Interclub match is played at the University Club Doubles Day is cancelled.

        Players with USTA ratings

        Players must play at their USTA level. The object of Doubles Day/Interclub is for players to practice with players of the same ranking or ability.

        Players with inactive USTA rating

        Players with inactive USTA ratings will play at their rating.  If that player believes they no longer play at their inactive rating they can request to the Tennis Director to be moved down.

        Players without USTA ratings

        Players who don’t have USTA ratings will be placed by the Tennis Director.

        What if a team needs more player/s for a Doubles Day or Interclub?

        For all teams, the Tennis Director will provide each Captain with a list of the top 8 players (by expanded USTA ratings) from the team below.  If there are too few players for a team to field Doubles Day or Interclub matches, the captain will send out an email to those top 8 to request player/s.  The top 8 players will then “reply to all” and the first player/s to respond will play. If no one responds from the top 8 an email will be sent to all of the players of the lower team. The first player/s to respond will play. Captains must CC the Tennis Director on all e mails including the request for subs. If on the day of the Doubles Day or Interclub a player is needed at the last minute, the captain can ask whoever is available either lower or higher rated player.

         

         

         

        WHAT AFFECTS A USTA RATING?

        Computerized NTRP ratings are affected by opponents, doubles partners and match results. Team position played, actual number of wins and losses or team standings do not affect computerized ratings.

         

         

        Ratings are calculated for each match played and then averaged to determine a final rating.

         

         

        Two players can play the entire year together, exclusively. At the end of the year when the ratings are published, the two partners can have different ratings. The players in question compete at the 3.5 level. When the new ratings are published, player A is still a 3.5; player B becomes a 4.0. How could this be possible?

         

         

        At the start of the year, player A had a rating of 3.26 (3.5 NTRP level), player B had a rating of 3.41 (3.5 NTRP). The improvement of each player was exactly the same: .13. Player A's final rating (based upon the previous season match results) was: 3.26 + .13 = 3.39. Player B's final rating was 3.41 + .13 = 3.54.

         

         

        Even though there was only a difference of .15 between the two players, when they both improved .13, it would be enough to push player B to the next (4.0) NTRP level. This situation can happen at any of the NTRP levels.

         

         

        Included in End of Year rating calculations are all USTA Senior and Adult Leagues' results, as well as NTRP tournament match results.
