Mixed Doubles (Friday Nites)

18 & Over, 40 & Over (Spring/Fall)

Cherokee Tennis Association offers Mixed Doubles Leagues in the Spring and Fall. USTA membership is required. A team match will consist of 3 lines of doubles with a 10 point tie break in lieu of a third set.

USTA League Tennis Mixed Doubles allows players of different NTRP levels to play together, encouraging participants to form teams with their friends, family and co-workers. Players without a NTRP rating are permitted to self-rate. If a participant is actively playing in the USTA League Tennis Adult, then the Mixed Doubles match results do not affect the person's rating. A player who competes only in the Mixed Doubles leagues will generate a Mixed Doubles Rating.

The winners from each level will advance to the State Championship in August. In order to have a successful season, we need lots of teams. Please start speaking with everyone you know who plays at the 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5 levels. Encourage them to form teams, the more the better! If you have a very large team, consider splitting into two teams. You only need 6 players each week. If you have court availability issues, we'll work with you! And as always, we'll accommodate anyone who has Men's/Women's USTA State playoff conflicts during the season!

A player's rating cannot exceed the highest rating shown on the chart. Players must be within 1.0 level of each other.

Level     Players            Individual Rating        Min. Rating
