USTA Mixed Doubles

Lake Norman Tennis Association

USTA Mixed Doubles

NEW FORMAT for 2024! Mixed Doubles will now be organized by straight rating levels: 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, and (10.0 Combined in 18 & Over Age Division).

Teams of male & female partners play 3 courts of doubles. Skill levels range from 2.5 to 4.5. (The 18 & Over age division offers 10.0 Combined to include the 5.0 level). Partners cannot be greater than one NTRP rating level apart. For example, a 3.5 can play with a 4.0 on a 4.0 team, but a 3.5 cannot play with a 4.5 on a 4.5 team. Teams may advance to State, Sectional, or National Championships, depending on the age division.

 

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.
