The mission of the Corporate Tennis League is to provide recreational tennis competition through weekly scheduled team matches for the corporate community in a congenial, sportsmanlike atmosphere.
     Two flights are A (Advanced)  & B (Intermediate), determined by performance/skill level from the 2018 final standings. Play level for A Flight is 4.0+ (NTRP Rating) and B Flight 3.0+ (NTRP Rating). 

     Format of a team match: a six-set match no-ad 6-game sets--two women's and two men's doubles played on two courts, followed by two mixed doubles sets using two courts and two pairs. 
Lets are honored as in traditional USTA tennis rules. The serves are replayed.
     
If set reaches 6-6 games all, the tie shall be broken by a 13-point tiebreaker (where the first team to reach 7 points wins, with no 2-point margin.) The Coman tiebreak procedure will apply. Substitutions are allowed at any time in the match, although a player may not return to the same category (men's, women's, mixed) he/she has left.
      If sets are split in any category, a Supertiebreaker will decide the winner.The first team to win 7 points with a two point margin wins. The captains designate the #1 pair, the stronger to play the Supertiebreaker.
    
The mission is possible--congenial competition at all times. No grievances allowed. Please refer issues to the League Manager, Bambi Dudley.

The top B teams advance to the A Flight the next season. Only rostered players may participate in the playoffs after playing two regular season matches. Defaults do not count as a match played. Non-rostered players may compete during the season if the team is in danger of defaulting. A sub may play unlimited times but may not qualify for playoffs.
