Keep yourself out there playing in the colder weather and practice those skills – sign up for the WWTA Ladies Winter League on weekday mornings. A USTA membership is not required and 2019 year end USTA ratings will be used. There will be two courts of doubles and one court of singles with a minimum 7 matches during the November – February season. Most USTA rules apply. If both captains agree you may play 3 courts of doubles. Third set is a 10 point tie-breaker unless both teams agree at the start of the match to play a full third set. All divisions are 18+ and matches start at 10:00 am.
Registration opens on October 5, 2020, and the last day to register your team is October 15, 2020. All teams must have a minimum of 6 players by that date, but players can be added during the season as long as the maximum of 15 players is not exceeded. The season will run from Nov. 2nd – Feb. 12th. After the season has started, the captain must request to have new players added by the Local League Coordinator (LLC) .
Playdays are: 2.5 Friday, 3.0 Monday, 3.5 Tuesday, 4.0 Thursday, 4.5 Wednesday.
Please note, no refunds will be given. Players should evaluate the current health crisis situation prior to registering. We will continue the league as long as we are in at least Phase 2 of North Carolina’s Stay Safe plan. We also expect that players will follow our safe play guidelines found on our Return to Play page.
Teams have the option to reschedule if the “feels like” temperature (which includes wind chill) is forecasted to be 35 degrees or less at match start time. Both captains should check the hourly forecast using their match location on Accuweather or the mobile App. This decision cannot be made until 2 hours before the match and no other weather resources can be used to obtain the forecast. If captains still want to consider playing in the cold, both must be in agreement. When matches are rescheduled, the new date and time confirmed will be treated as the new match date. Matches should be make up within 4 weeks but please contact the LLC if you have special circumstances and cannot meet that requirement.
