Combo League Registration will begin May 13th!! We've heard many say it's their favorite season of the year!! You must have 3 eligible partners registered in TennisLink by June 17th.
USTA League gives Kudos to the LCTA for being in the National Top Ten in overall growth in both Unique Players increase and increased league registrations! Give yourself a hand Player!
There is a correction to an earlier post regarding Combo. There is NOT a rule that there is to be a one-point spread between partners. The new rule institutes a cap on the rating for each level as follows:
NTRP cap for Combined Levels:
Level Max Rating
So, as you get into the higher levels, there can be a 1 1/2 - 2 point spread between partners. The new rule more affects the lower levels where you can no longer register a 4.0 on a 6.5 team to play with a 2.5.
Congratulations to LCTA teams, Charleston Tennis Center Swingers 55+ 3.0 Champions and Charleston Tennis Center Playrights,55+ 3.5 Champions and the MPR Closers 55+ 4.0 Champions!
