Impact Team Tennis (ITT)
Formerly World TeamTennis
Formerly World Team Tennis, ITT is co-ed teams competing in a format that consists of 6 no-ad sets. One set each of men’s and women’s doubles followed by men’s and women’s singles, ending with 2 sets of mixed doubles. Total games won from all sets determines the winner. Substitution and coaching are allowed during the match.
A team must have two men and two women, as a minimum. (10 players maximum). This allows for periods of rest and missing matches. We also provide a list of approved substitutes for team back-ups.
Virginia Beach League, minimum of 6 players for a Team (not including subs) – maximum 10 players (subs will also be included in the 10 max).
Winning teams advance to the ITT Regional Championships. Your team is eligible to participate in a ITT Regional Championship for up to one year from the end date of your league. For every four (4) teams in any official Impact Team Tennis local league division, one (1) team will be eligible to participate in ITT Regional Championships. Each player has to play at least 2 matches to be eligible to participate at a Regional Championship. Click here for more details.

Determining the Team Rating
The average NTRP rating of the top two men and top two women players on your team determines the team rating.
|PLAYERS – MEN||PLAYERS – WOMEN|
|Joe- 4.5||Mary- 3.5|
|Bill- 4.0||Gail- 3.5|
|Mark- 4.5||Jane – 3.5|
|Jim- 3.5||Joan- 3.0|
The best two men and two women are: 4.5 + 4.5 + 3.5 + 3.5 = 16.
16 divided by 4 equals 4.0.
This team could register for the 4.0 division or a higher division. A team consists of a minimum of two men and two women. Although the limit to the number of team members is ten, the suggested number of players is three men and three women. Click here to determine your NTRP level.

Registering as an individual or a substitute
I will make every effort to find an existing team for you to join. If not, I will place you on a substitute list. You will be called by the league coordinator or a team captain in the event a replacement/sub player is needed.
For substitute players: Register with the Team you will be a substitute for. You can only be a Sub on one team in same division. Each time you play, you pay a sub fee. A sub is considered a part of that team.
