All teams are based on ability level. The divisions are 18 & Over adult men and women (2.5-5.0+), 40 & Over men and women (3.0-4.5+), 55 & Over as well as 65 & Over men and women (6.0-8.0). Anyone who turns the particular age or is older than the division number may participate in that league. (Ex: an individual turning 40 in December may participate in both the 18 & Over and 40 & Over leagues.)  All players must be at least 18 years of age prior to registering.

Players in any division must have a computer rating or self-rating and be a USTA member.

Any player without a rating will be required to self-rate when registering for a team. Players can play on one team in a division. However, they can play on one team in as many divisions as they choose. Players must play at their NTRP rating or above.

2020 MIDWEST SENIOR TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
The 2020  USTA/Midwest Section Senior Team Championships will be held May 16-17 at Michigan State University in Lansing, MI. This fun and exciting competition among the districts has these divisions: men’s 35, 45, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80 and women’s 35, 45, 55, 60, 65, 70 and 75. Each district can send one doubles team per age group. Players may be older than the age division, but not younger.

CITA has not received official info for this year’s competition, but historically the tournament has run as described below. CRC will post information when it arrives. Entry deadline is Wednesday, May 6.                                                      

Each division will play a full round robin. Each match will consist of one eight game pro-set with a match tiebreak played at 7-all. Each district team will be awarded one point for each game one by all of the doubles teams entered. The district scoring the most points will be declared the winner. Additionally, doubles teams scoring the most points within the age division will receive a division championship award.

All participants must have a USTA membership valid through May 31, 2020.

If more than one doubles team registers for an age division by the deadline, challenge matches will determine which doubles team will represent CITA at this event. Challenge match playoffs TBA.
