Effective this year (2016 State Championships), week 1 will host all 5.0/6.5/8.5 levels and week 2 will host all 5.5/7.5/9.5 levels.  This includes all age divisions.  For instance, ALL 18 & Over, 40 & Over, 55 & Over and 65 & Over 6.5 Men’s and Women’s teams will play week 1. 
In 2015, we had 94 teams week 1 for the 40/65 & Over age divisions.  In week 2, we had 165 teams in the 18/55 & Over age divisions.  The drastic increase in teams in week 2 put a huge strain on resources…courts, volunteers, etc.  We needed to find a more equitable split between the 2 weeks.  We looked at readjusting the age divisions, but the soft court requirements were still too out of whack between the 2 weeks.  By splitting levels, based on 2015 numbers, we would have had 132 teams week 1 (with 45 teams requiring soft courts) and 127 teams week 2 (with 43 teams requiring soft courts).  

The SOUTHERN COMBO DOUBLES LEAGUE is one of the fastest growing adult programs in the USTA's Southern Section. This program features Men's and Women's teams playing 3 doubles matches. The doubles teams use a combined NTRP rating that does not exceed the level on which they are playing. The unique format is what makes the COMBO DOUBLES league so fun! It also offers the chance to play with different people and to make new friends.

To participate:

Must be at least 18 years of age.  Age divisions include 18 & over, 40 & over, 55 & over and 65 & over
Current USTA membership
Have an NTRP computer rating or must self-rate themselves according to the NTRP guidelines

** Please note: If your match is on a Meredith College court, alcohol is NOT allowed on the campus
