Tri-Level League

If you want to play on a team with friends at different NTRP levels or if you are having a hard time getting enough people together to form a team, the Tri-Level League (18 & Over) is for you. Play doubles with your friends, while on a team consisting of 3 or more NTRP levels. Example: one 3.0 doubles, one 3.5 doubles and one 4.0 doubles = Tri-Level team. This socially competitive league is a great way to enjoy the camaraderie of friends in the ultimate team experience.
