Guidelines for Team Formation
In the past, the only requirement has been for a team to guarantee the availability of 3 courts to form a team. With the team growth and expansion of divisions, the following guidelines are recommended. They are based on CALTA rules.
For 3 position leagues (Mixed, Combo, Singles, 55+, 65+, 70+, 75+, 2.5, and 5.0+), a maximum for two teams for every 3 courts can be accommodated. If a facility will commit the following - 3 – 5 courts – 2 teams; 6 – 8 courts - 4 teams, 9 or more courts - 6 teams at a facility.
For 5 position leagues, a maximum of 2 teams can be accommodated for 3 – 9 courts; a maximum of 4 teams can be accommodated in facilities that will commit 10 courts. In the case of Charleston Tennis Center, more than 4 teams can be accommodated by using Bee’s Ferry; for Maybank, additional teams can be accommodated by using Alan Fleming Courts.
