What to expect from Match Play
Developed by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the ITF World Tennis Number (WTN) is a rating that provides a global standard for players in both singles and doubles with a scale of 40-1. WTN Match Play allows players to participate in matches that count towards their WTN without having to commit to a tournament. Players can be placed in groups based on their rating to promote an appropriate competitive level and positive sportsmanship through level-based play. Please note that WTN Match Play is offered in orange, green, and yellow ball programs, but orange ball does not count towards WTN.
The SVTA Match Play event will be from 9 am - 2 pm at the Winchester Parks and Recreation Lowry courts located next to Shenandoah University. Players will be placed in tournaments based on their World Tennis Number. Each match in the tournament will be a six game set with winner advancing in the main draw. Each player will play three matches regardless of their results. There is a maximum of 24 players. Players are to be 13 and older (adults and juniors). Players must register by end of day Thursday, September 14.
