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 Royal Kona Resort Tennis Club Round Robin, a "Play with Aloha" event, attracts our local club members and visitors. Many snowbirds who return every year consider it a highlight of their trip. They enjoy getting together with Royal Kona Resort Tennis Club members, a melting pot of diehard tennis fans who love the game and love to play! Be sure to come early to grab your spot in this social event and ask for Minoru. He's been the volunteer round-robin coordinator for over 30 years! The event format pairs you with a doubles partner; then you play four games. With each subsequent round, you get paired with a different partner and different opponents. The skill level ranges from 3.0-4.0, and everyone in attendance is there to have fun! It's a great way to meet new players and find potential playing partners.
