Southern Combo Doubles
The Combo Doubles League is one of the fastest growing USTA adult programs in the Southern Section. Men’s & Women’s teams play 3 courts of doubles. Teams may have 6 players minimum, or 15 maximum, in leagues ranging from 2.5 to 10.5 skill levels.
Players & their partners use a combined NTRP rating that does not exceed the level of their league. For example, on a 7.5 team, a 4.0 player may play with a partner who has a 3.5 (or lower) rating. This format provides a chance to play with partners of different rating levels.
Teams compete locally to progress from local play to State & Sectional Championships!
NTRP Ratings Info
This league uses the NTRP rating system. Each player must have either a computer rating or must be self – rated.
- If you’re not sure what your rating is, you can find it through Tennislink.
- If you don’t have a rating, you can complete the ‘self – rate’ process found there.
