USTA Tri-Level Tennis (18/40/55 & Over)

Tri-Level Tennis:  Tri-Level Tennis is a USTA format designed to provide a unique team league opportunity to members by combining players of differing NTRP levels on teams in local, state, and sectional competition. 

A way to team up with friends who play at different NTRP levels.  Three levels of players are all on the same team.  Same level teams play against one another.  A team match consists of three doubles matches played at three different levels. 

Format: Match consists of 3 individual doubles matches with the highest NTRP level playing line #1 and the lowest NTRP level playing line #3.
