Happy 2020! Spring Season is gearing up with options for Windyrush Ladies Tennis.

There are 3 Queen City Team options for LADIES. All begin in March.

Thursday mornings – 6 lines of doubles- Joni Smith CaptainJoniSmith@aol.com

Sunday afternoon – 4 lines of doubles – THIS IS A MIXED DOUBLES LEAGUE – still need a Captain 

Players must be a USTA member AND there is a USTA FEE associated with being on a team.  

These teams are more competitive than our QC League teams. In order to play on a specific team, you must have a current USTA ranking that meets the team requirement.

Non WR members are welcome to participate on a WR team as long as the majority of the team is comprised of WR members. (A fee payable to WR may apply in addition to USTA FEE)

Because of the competitive nature of a USTA team, captains may create a team at their discretion.

There is no limit to the number of WR teams that can be formed, even within the same league if necessary.

You can play on only one USTA team per league. (ie, you can play on a (3.0) 18+ team AND ALSO a (3.0) 40+ team. But you CANNOT play on a (3.0)18+ morning team AND (3.0) 18+ night team. 

WR NEEDS CAPTAINS for any USTA teams to be formed. Please contact Joni Smith if you would like to captain a USTA spring team. JoniSmith@aol.com OR 704-904-6454
